=====Baker House===== =====Baker House=====
-The layout for Baker House and [[v:van_meter_hall|Van Meter]] House respected the east-west axis formed by [[g:greenough_hall|Greenough House]] and [[c:chadbounre_hall|Chadbourne House]], and the relative symmetry of [[b:brooks_hall|Brooks House]] and [[n:new_africa_house|Mills House]]. The two new buildings structured courtyard spaces to the east and west of Greenough House and Chadbourne House. A campus map from 1959 shows the completed complex with pedestrian paths providing access to all sides of the buildings (extant). Evergreen trees are shown in the areas to the east and west of Baker House (extant). An historic image of Baker House shows upright evergreen shrubs framing the entrance to the building (no longer extant). +The layout for Baker House and [[v:van_meter_hall|Van Meter]] House respected the east-west axis formed by [[g:greenough_hall|Greenough House]] and [[c:chadbourne_hall|Chadbourne House]], and the relative symmetry of [[b:brooks_hall|Brooks House]] and [[n:new_africa_house|Mills House]].
