Portfolio > Vanderbilt University Historical Architecture

Cornelius Vanderbilt gave a million dollars in 1873 as the founding gift for Vanderbilt University. The cornerstone for the first building, Maine Hall, now Kirkland Hall, was laid in 1874 and first classes were held in 1875. William C. Smith of Nashville was the architect for many of the first buildings including my paintings of Kirkland Hall, the Vaughn House, Old No. 7, and the Mechanical Engineering Building.
