Orton Hall at Ohio State University

Orton Hall
This is Orton Hall at The Ohio State University. It's the home of our Geology department, and it's one of the most interesting university buildings in the country. The exterior is made up of several layers of rock that were mined in Ohio, which represent geological strata from the Ordovician to more recent times.

The interior space is also beautiful. I can't imagine how much this building would cost in modern dollars. It was built in the late 1800s.
