The Agriculture Hall is located on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and first held classes in the fall of 1903. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]

History[edit]

The building was commissioned after attendance for agriculture grew to ten times its previous size in a period of five years.[2] In 2001, the building was also honored by the UW Foundation with a commemorative marker.[3]
