This building stood at the entryway to the Botanical Gardens. Three stuccoed arches frame the entry, with two pavilions punctuating either end. The end pavilions were arched and topped by hexagonal domes. A dome composed of lath stood behind the entryway with two barrel-vaulted, yet transparent extensions protruding from either side, also created from lath.
