$65.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1054-2313

C1880 image taken by local Gettysburg photographer William Tipton. At left is the observatory building, at right the Preparatory Department. The observatory building fell into disuse and disrepair, in the early 1900s; when a particularly bad contagious disease spread across campus in 1917, the building was used as a temporary infirmary. The building was demolished by the college’s administration in 1925 and the telescope was moved into storage.

Stevens Hall is the 4th oldest building on the college campus; named for Thaddeus Stevens, it opened its doors in 1868 as a preparatory school for the college. Today it serves as a residence hall.

Image measures 7 ½” x 4” on a card with printed information; double matted, measuring 10” x 8”. Protected by plastic wrapping. [ld]
