Farm House : College Farm to University Museum

Mary E. Atherly

Description

Now available for the first time in paperback, "Farm House" tells the story of the first structure built on the Iowa State University campus. Mary Atherly provides a comprehensive history of the Farm House from its founding days in 1860 to its role as the center of activity for the new college to its second life as a National Historic Landmark and welcoming museum visited by thousands each year. New photographs add to the first edition's rich array of images and a foreword by Gregory Geoffroy, ISU's president since 2001, adds to its historical content. The history of Iowa's only land-grant university and its impressive cultural and educational impact on the state and the nation as it evolved from model farm to college to modern multipurpose university is inseparable from the history of the Farm House.show more
