Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 21, 1965):
Constructed in 1866-68, this was the original building of Cornell University. Cornell's founding marked a revolution in American higher education, for it offered training on the basis of equality among the disciplines to prepare students for useful careers in the post-Civil War era. Named for the author of the Morrill Land Grant Act of 1862.
