Description

Organized as a series of walks through the distinct neighborhoods of Dartmouth College and parts of the surrounding town of Hanover, New Hampshire, Dartmouth College provides an intimate view of one of the most unique and picturesque Ivy League campuses. It contains a comprehensive illustration of today's campus and charts its historic evolution from a small school in the wilderness to the last college granted a royal charter before the Revolution. Comprised primarily of clean, classical, and simple buildings by turn-of-the-century architects like Jens Frederick Larson and Charles Alonzo Rich, Dartmouth's campus also boasts impressive modern buildings by Gwathmey Siegel; Robert A. M. Stern; KieranTimberlake Associates; and Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates.
