The Cultural Landscape of the UW-Madison Campus image gallery was developed as a research tool to support a two-year effort to inventory and assess cultural landscape resources on the University of Wisconsin-Madison main campus. The study will culminate in November 2005 with the publication of a Cultural Landscape Resource Plan. This plan will provide university administrators with direction for preserving and managing these culturally significant places.
Given the constraints of the two-year research schedule it was not possible to review all sites on the campus that have historic, cultural or archaeological significance. The selection of images, maps and site plans reflects our primary interest in eight campus sectors:
- Bascom Hill
- Library Mall
- Memorial Union Terrace
- John Muir Park
- Camp Randall Memorial Park
- Henry Mall
- Observatory Hill
- Agricultural campus
In addition to historic images, this collection also contains 25 text-based volumes that provide insight into the University’s history and development. Resources include materials that document campus landmarks, the history of housing at UW, campus planning and architecture, and more!
