The D.M. Rutherford Family Conservatory

The restoration of this historic greenhouse was made possible through the generous gift of Don Rutherford, OAC '51 and his family of Bobcaygeon, Ontario.

A strong supporter of the Ontario Agricultural College and the University of Guelph, Don rutherford wishes to commemorate the experiences and the broad education that he, and many like him, received as students on this campus.

It is fitting that this restored building, opened June 19,1999, on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Ontario Agricultural College, hounours the name of an outstanding alumnus, Donald M. Rutherford.
