Benton Hall Watercolor

This watercolor of Benton Hall is another in my series on the historical architecture of the OSU campus in Corvallis, OR. This was the first building on the 39 acre campus (for $25,000 in 1887) of the original state agricultural college. A working clock in the clock tower was not added until 1988. Before that it was just a drawing of a clock face. Strange but true. Today it is the home of the Department of Music. I took the liberty of adding the cello "f holes" on the sides of the tower.
This painting is 11X14.
