MAC 1870

Campus as it appeared to the first students at Massachusetts Agricultural College: a wide space of farm and field, with a few buildings scattered about. At this early date, two roads already divided MAC into what was called the east and west campuses, forming a shape that looks appropriately like the leaf of an elm tree.
