Across Campus:

Sanborn Field and Soil Erosion Plots (1888): Sanborn Field was initiated in late 1888 by Dean J. W. Sanborn to demonstrate the value of crop rotations and manure in grain-crop production. The emphasis on the field started with and continues to be on soil properties affected by alternative management schemes. It is known nationally as containing the plot from which Aureomycin — used in chlortetracycline, an early antibiotic — was produced.

Waters and Curtis halls were declared eligible for listing on the National Register in 1999 but have not yet been added.
