A three story Beaux Arts building which was expanded from the existing Dairy Building. The Dairy Building, the first state-financed and agriculture building was designed by Charles Osborne and constructed in 1893. The location of this building was determined by the need for easy delivery of milk from the North Barn to the Dairy Building. Professor Osborne designed the building to be sensitive to the qualities of the other structures on the Quadrangle. The building is faced with rough-cut ashlar stonework, and features symmetrically balanced facades and the entrance consists of a gabled porch with an arch opening supported by columns on pedestals. In 1903 Goldwin Smith was added to the south end of the Dairy Building. The building facade is classically derived and features a freestanding portico with four columns, and addresses the spectacular western view through the gap between Morrill and McGraw Halls. Aside from the molded ceiling of the portico and graceful columns the stone walls are unadorned, in a sense paying respect to the simplicity of the surrounding buildings. An important element of the building remains its graceful entry and spatial sequence to the rear-rounded auditorium.
