Architecture of Oberlin College provides historical and current information on the College's structures and monuments from its founding in 1833 to the present day.
Images of structures in photographs, drawings, and engravings that illustrate the entries were drawn from the Archives' holdings, the College's Office of Communications, or were the result of new photography for this project. Older structures are indicated on historical campus maps reproduced for this exhibit. Tags enable more keyword searching and collocating.
For example, each entry was tagged for a build date in early, mid- or late 19th and 20th centuries, or early 21st century. Use the search box, browse buildings, architects, and campus maps, and read about current construction and planning projects.
