Once again, you are looking at a building that backs onto the Mall and has an imposing front entrance on Munson Road. Built in 1904 as a shop for engineering departments, Lord Hall contained a forge and foundry in the rear ell. The building with its distinctive granite trimmings above the first-floor windows has been extensively remodeled several times and now houses the Department of Art. Throughout the year, Lord Hall Gallery showcases exhibitions of work by student, faculty and visiting artists. Lord Hall was named for business and political leader Henry Lord, president of the university’s Board of Trustees, 1892–1908.
