2. Adams House, 601 Main Street,1905. (Harding and Upman)

 
Adams House, 1905  
   
Now used as an administrative building for the School of Natural Resources and the University Extension Service, this elegant Beaux-Arts classically geometric form raised on an elevated site with ballustrade and doric temple portico was initially built as a U.S. Weather Station. In its almost hundred year existence Adams House has served such diverse functions as the center for Military Studies and the Pringle Herbarium.
