Northwest Residential Area

The Northwest Residential Area was a planned residential dorm area for campus that was planned to be built north of where the parking lots for Grinnell Arena are today. The only references for this dorm area exist on maps of the 1960s. Apparently the dorm area was abandoned and the Sylvan Residential Area might've come out of the Northwest plans, although this is unconfirmed. Evidence supporting this can be found on a map of campus in the 1960s where the Northwest area is shown while the Sylvan area isn't mentioned.
