Morrill Hall, located on Cornell University’s Arts Quad, was the first building constructed on campus in 1866. Named in honor of Cornell’s founding as a Morrill land grant institution, this Second Empire-style academic building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966 and contributes to Ithaca’s Arts Quad local historic district. As one of the university's original buildings, it stands as a proud reminder of the institution's storied past. Through careful restoration and maintenance, Morrill Hall demonstrates Ithaca's commitment to honoring its architectural heritage while adapting to the needs of a modern academic community.
