The University of Nebraska's campus in Lincoln has grown in interesting ways over the past 140 years, and this website offers curious parties an architectural tour of the City and East Campuses. Using architectural records and documents from the university's Facilities Management department and other publications, researchers at the University of Nebraska Libraries offer photographs and narrative essays on the histories of standing and demolished structures on both campuses. Visitors will want to start by reading the "Historical Overview" essay. After that, they can click on a tour of the City or East Campus as they wish. While the whole exhibit documents the transformation of the campuses and the mission of the university over the decades, a few buildings in particular are worth a closer look. Visitors should make sure to look at the Agricultural Experiment Station on the East Campus and the Temple on the City Campus.
