Building History

 

Built in 1889, the College's first barn was this octagonal structure; an addition was built in 1892. It served as the heart of the College's 180-acre farm until 1909, when construction of a new barn was completed. In later years, the Octagonal Barn served the College as a horse barn until it burned in September 1924. The barn was located approximately where Gilmore Hall is today.
