Journey through time and explore the fascinating history of Holden Observatory. A building few students on campus visit during their time on the Hill, Holden is the second-oldest building on campus, and has a celebrated history all its own. Holden is more than just a landmark of the past, however; it is a window to the future, too.

On Thursday, May 16, join Robert Searing G’12, ’16, curator of history at the Onondaga Historical Association, to learn about the history of Holden Observatory. From the visionaries behind its creation, to a look into its past status as a preeminent scientific resource for faculty and students, to its legendary trip across campus after it was built, the legacy of Holden is something you won’t want to miss.
