The Art Building faced the State Capital. Its hansom brick front and window frames were elegantly counter pointed by the even coating of fall leaves coving the lawn and path.

Star Trees

The Star Trees of Willamette University (Sequoiadendron giganteum) were giant Sequoias. A nearby sign read:

This grove of giant Sequoias was planted by students of the Class of 1942 in honor of Willamette University's 100th anniversary. Founded by Jason Lee in 1842, Willamette University is recognized as the oldest university in the west. In 1997, the campus started an annual holiday tradition by lighting the Star Trees from mid-December to January. They are now consider to be the tallest Christmas trees on a college campus in America.
