There is still time to visit the Beaumier Heritage Center’s summer exhibit, “A Beautiful Location: the Architecture of NMU,” which began in June and will end on September 4.
Students, as well as community members, are welcome to enter for free during the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on business days and from 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. The Beaumier Heritage Center is located in Gries Hall.
This museum exhibit “looks at how Northern Michigan University went from a one-building campus in a remote part of Marquette, to its expansion as a modern campus of the 1960s and the wired community of today,” said the NMU event calendar. “NMU has had a rich and fascinating physical history. The campus features some of the region’s most significant structures designed by Michigan’s greatest architects.”
Through photos, maps, architectural diagrams and artifacts, students can learn about pieces of the campus which no longer exist, including Kaye Hall, and about the significance of structures that are still present, such as Harden Hall.
