U.S. Botanic Garden (USBG) In 1816, the constitution of the Columbian Institute for the Promotion of Arts and Sciences in Washington D.C. suggested the construction of a botanical garden that would benefit the American people. The garden would serve to collect, grow, and distribute plants from the United States and other foreign countries. The garden was instituted in 1820 west of the Capitol Grounds, though the pursuit was abandoned in 1837. However in 1850, interest in the Botanic Garden was renewed following an 1842 expedition which had brought a large collection of living plants back to the United States. Since 1850, the garden has been in operation though its location was changed in 1933.
