Summary

Significance: The Administration Building was designed by Cram, Goodhue, and Ferguson as the keystone of their 1903 competition plan.

Designed in a collegiate neo-gothic style, the Administration Building is embellished with exterior and interior ornamentation that identifies its important as the post academy headquarters.
