-French Hall Greenhouse is comprised of five connected greenhouses located on the rear (east) side of French Hall. The greenhouses are connected to [[f:french_hall|French Hall]] by way of the one-story brick ell that extends off French Hall’s east elevation. +French Hall Greenhouse is comprised of five connected greenhouses located on the rear (east) side of French Hall. The greenhouses are connected to [[f:french_hall|French Hall]] by way of the one-story brick ell that extends off French Hall’s east elevation. A [[https://archive.org/details/bulletin01univ/page/n13/mode/2up | detailed description of the greenhouses]] is available in the Jan. 1909 annual report.
The main entry to the connected greenhouses is in the front gable main greenhouse that is connected to the east side of the brick ell. This greenhouse’s entry is in its south elevation, through a central two-leaf door that has 2/3 fixed panes in its upper half and two panels in its wood lower half. The main greenhouse had a symmetrical gable front, unlike several of the other four greenhouses that have asymmetrical gable fronts that resemble the outline of a saltbox house’s end gable. The main greenhouse was connected to French Hall and the other four greenhouses by way of short greenhouse link structures on its east and west elevations. Unfortunately, a wind storm knocked a large hemlock tree into the main greenhouse on December 30th, 2008. The building was thoroughly damaged and has since been torn down and replaced by a walkway made of plywood. The cost to replace this greenhouse was estimated at "a couple hundred thousand dollars" and it has yet to be seen when or if a new greenhouse will be erected on the old foundation.

-The other four greenhouses are on the east side of the main greenhouse and have their gable ends on their east and west elevations, with their long sides facing north and south. These four greenhouses are interconnected at the center line of their eastwest elevations, by short north-south greenhouse link structures that form a lateral spine for the greenhouse complex.+The other four greenhouses are on the east side of the main greenhouse and have their gable ends on their east and west elevations, with their long sides facing north and south.
