Wildflower Hall started life as a country escape for Viceroys and high-ranking officials. It was well-loved and visited often by Lord Kitchener, who many call "the greatest Commander-in-Chief that India has ever possessed." In addition to the comforts of the residence, he also enjoyed camping and shooting in the area.
Kitchener took command of the gardens, planning, planting, and even paying for them. He also had a snow-pit built, which created ice that was used in Wildflower Hall's kitchens throughout the year.
