The Twelve Days of Christmas Ornaments! Day Five: O Noble Dickinsonia

PC210089


Again, this was supposed to be yesterday's ornament. This one is veerrry self-explanatory. It's the main building of my undergrad institution (Dickinson College)--Old West. It currently holds the administrative offices of the college and is the building from which graduates emerge to accept their diplomas. Interestingly, it was designed by Benjamin Latrobe, an architect of the U.S. Capitol and namesake of Latrobe, PA--near my hometown, where Rolling Rock USED to be brewed and where my brother went to college at St. Vincent's.

  1. I did not know that the architect of Old West also designed the capitol!
