Inverleith House was designed in 1773 by David Henderson and built for the Rocheid family in 1774. In about 1820 a part of the Inverleith estate was sold to become the Royal Botanic Garden. The house was bought by the city in 1877 together with another part of the estate and, after restoration work following a fire, became the official residence of the Regius Keeper (director) of the Royal Botanic Garden. From 1960 it housed the new Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which in 1984 moved to the building of the former John Watson's Institution in west Edinburgh. On 4 December 1970 the house was listed as a historic building in category B, with Historic Scotland id 28081. An extension was built in 1974. Since 1986 Inverleith House has been used as exhibition space by the Royal Botanic Garden. Exhibitions of botanical and contemporary art are held there.
For the twentieth anniversary in 2006 there was an exhibition of botanical drawings from south India (1826-1853), and solo exhibitions by Roni Horn, Rudolf Stingel, Robert Ryman, and Douglas Gordon.[not in citation given]
