This "campus" is actually a collection of 9 buildings - all built in the 1700 & 1800's. The engineering and architectural elements of older buildings is an important part of learning about engineering and architecture in general. Understanding past engineering elements leads to greater stability in future engineering designs...especially as the world strives to become more sustainable. Historic buildings are exemplary examples of how sustainable building materials can actually last for centuries.
