Iconic buildings on your campus
What are some of your favorite buildings on your campus or any SEC campus


The Lyceum built in 1848


Ventress Hall built in 1889 (has an original stained glass window, I can't imagine the value of that)


Rowan Oak, home of William Faulkner, built in 1844, I believe Ole Miss owns it now, there's a trail from campus to the home.

My weed dealer's dorm room was the most iconic on Bama's campus when I was a student.

it didn’t look like the Lyceum. The bricks aren’t usually that red

I really like Auburn's old buildings. Are they Richardsonian Romanesque? Or what? Somebody gayer than me tell me the architectural style.

Old Main is Second Empire (French looking, mansard roof).

The old courthouse in Fayetteville is Richardsonian Romanesque.

Could have been...Qbert came out in '82 and the Hodges Library was built in '87.
