Old Main Clock

The original Old Main building, constructed in 1880, was replaced in 1917, but the clock was saved. This little tower was built in the 1990s to house the four sided clock which keeps time but does not chime. The larger tower does chime using a Westminster chime pattern.

New House

This house was built by South Dakota State University's Architecture Department to feature their innovative ideas and energy efficiency. Personally I do not like it for a number of reasons. The exterior is an eye sore. It looks like it was designed by a first grader drawing a house with a ruler. It is built on a lot next to the Brookings Area Habitat For Humanity office, and Habitat was competing to buy this lot to build an affordable house. Habitat lost out to the University with its much deeper pockets. After construction was completed the house is now offered for sale to the public at just under $400,000. The location is in a neighborhood of older, small houses averaging about $150,000 in value. There are no buyers on the horizon after being on the market for four months. Who would want to spend that kind of money to live in an older neighborhood in an ugly house even if it was energy efficient?
