Q. History of the buildings on Mines campus?

I want to find out about the history of the buildings on Mines campus--When were they built, what did the campus look like?


Some Mines buildings have dates on their stonework or cornerstones. Some of our buildings are historical landmarks for Golden, and/or on the National Register of Historic Places (like Steinhauer Fieldhouse), with write-ups available on the Web. A good general resource is the 2014 Mines Magazine article, "Building history: Campus structures reveal Mines' past."

If you use the above resources to identify a building's construction date, you can look for additional information in the campus news sections of older issues of Mines Magazine. Some Mines Catalogs (Bulletins) and Prospector Yearbooks include campus maps, so you can trace how the campus grew over time.
