Built 1857-59 by Chancellor F.A.P. Barnard, the Observatory housed the Physics and Astronomy Department until 1939 and was the home of chancellors until 1971. The West Wing, called McCain Hall, was used by the NROTC, 1947-89. The Observatory was restored in 1990-92 for the Center for the Study of Southern Culture.
