Not long after its completion in April 1876, the University of Colorado's Main Building was described as "an imposing structure...Its head above a barren and wind-swept plain...A monument of patience, looking down upon the frontier village...Removed from any sidewalk by nearly a mile of mud." Known since the 1890's as "Old Main," the building housed the entire University for eight years, including President Sewall and his family, the janitor, the library and all the classrooms.
