Old Main, University of Wyoming
Built in 1887, Old Main is not only the University of Wyoming's oldest building, but one that predates the Wyoming's statehood in 1890. The building was designed by architect Frederick Albert Hale in the Richardsonian Romanesque style and featured classrooms, laboratories, and a library. Buildings that were constructed in later years were designed in similar styles in order to keep architecture on the campus uniform. Similar to many other universities, Old Main no longer holds classrooms and serves as the university's administration building.
