Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 11, 1971):
Three structures on this small campus are of architectural significance: the Main Building (1829; 1852), a large Roman Revival edifice, was designed by William Strickland and and later enlarged by Edward B. White; the Gate Lodge (1852), also in the Roman Revival style, was designed by White; the Library (1856), a mid-19th century Classical Revival structure with Italianate details, is the work of George Walker. The three buildings achieve architectural unity through their Pompeian-red stuccoed walls.

Condition:
There is concern that portions of a number of buildings have deteriorated to the point where their structural integrity is in question. This is being addressed by a state-funded rehabilitation program.
