    […] After our discussion the other day of the potential text for a potential historical marker for the institution, I ran across this image of Monroe Hall on the centennial blog. […]

    This picture is incredible. I just bought the pictorial book of the college and it had another photograph that blew my mind. It showed the original three buildings on the hill, but more importantly it showed a sparse and almost pastorial Fredericksburg!

    I couldn’t agree with you more, Roxanne. The vast expanse of space that is visible through the columns suggest an entirely different landscape. And the snow almost makes it otherworldly with the recent climate.
