Old Main

We recently headed up to Fayetteville for the weekend to visit family, and before heading home I stopped at the University of Arkansas campus to get a few pictures of Old Main. It was Spring Break, so there weren't any students around, so no one randomly called the hogs while we were there.

Old Main was built between 1873 and 1875 and is the oldest building on the campus. The building closed in 1981 and there was a debate on whether it was best to tear down the aging building or to renovate it. Fortunately, it was saved and renovated and reopened in 1991.
