MU in Brick and Mortar
MU in Brick and Mortar has documented the complete history of 97 different buildings and sites from all parts of campus, including several historic locations which no longer exist on campus. Most of the collection, like the Building and Infrastructure Archives' collection, dates back to 1892. This was the year of the famous Academic Hall fire, which left nothing of the original building but the six columns that still adorn Francis Quadrangle. There are still a few buildings that pre-date the fire, and they are featured in this collection; however, the campus as we know it today essentially began in 1892. Our web presentation, therefore, uses this date as a starting point for exploring the rich history of the MU campus' construction.
