The University of Wisconsin-Madison campus includes one massive football stadium, several greenhouses, a building that housed John Muir during his student days, and a large statue of Abraham Lincoln sitting atop Bascom Hill. This digital collection from the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections group presents almost 500 images which document the cultural landscape of the campus from the middle of the 19th century to the present day. The items are arranged chronologically into three separate eras, and visitors can also just click on "View all images" to browse around as they see fit. Here visitors will find images of the first agricultural campus, Camp Randall (a Civil War training camp), and the Memorial Union Terrace. Visitors shouldn't miss the aerial shots of campus or the shots of the Armory, also known locally as the Red Gym.
