Walking through the Past: 70 Years of NMU Architecture

A walking tour of Northern Michigan University focused on its architecture.

In 1949, Harry D. Lee Hall was built on the campus of NMU and now remains as the oldest structure on campus. All of the buildings from the previous 50 years of NMU’s history are now gone. Regardless, NMU still has a fascinating architectural legacy. For instance, do you know that the designer of Lee, West, Gries and the University Center (Ralph Calder) worked with famed architect Eliel Saarinen at the Cranbrook Institute?

In this walking tour of campus, Beaumier Center Director, Daniel Truckey, will tell you the history of NMU’s transformation from one, two-story brownstone classroom
