Photograph of two people around the fountain in front of the Main Building in the early 1900s. The Wooden Dormitory can be seen in the background. The fountain was created in 1897 as the center point of a carriage turn in front of Main Building. When the fountain failed to work properly, it was used as a planter. In 1930, the Class of 1928 commissioned a new Fountain which survived until the 1960s when it was removed and the area was paved. Main building, designed by Epps & Hackett of Greensboro, North Carolina, was opened in 1892. Two flanking wings were added in 1895. From 1892 to 1908, the building was called Main Building and from 1908 to 1960 it was called Administration Building. In 1960, the building was named in honor of Julius Isaac Foust, president of College from 1906 to 1934. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The Guilford Residence Hall was a twenty-two room dormitory that was built in 1892 and was originally called Wooden Dormitory. It was then nicknamed “Midway” after the Chicago Exposition of 1893 and later called Guilford Dormitory. The dormitory was razed in 1935 to make room for the Alumni House.
