Long Description:

The Emile E. Watson Administration Building was constructed between 1946 and 1948. It houses the office of the college president and other administrative offices. The Watson and Fine buildings are often perceived as one structure, but they are distinctly separate, connected by the Esplanade. Together, these buildings cost $200,000 to construct. Note the tall decorative red light pole at the north end of the buildings.

Visitors are welcome on the campus. Please park in marked visitor parking, or along Johnson Avenue, on the west side of campus. Walking tour brochures with maps are available here:
