Fodor's Review

The 100-acre campus of this liberal-arts college founded in 1795 was the first in America to be designed by an architect. The grounds include Jackson's Garden, an oasis of perennials and herbs near a bubbling brook.

At the campus center is the 1875 Nott Memorial, a 16-sided structure with a colorful slate mosaic dome. The unusual building, a National Historic Landmark, is illuminated in the evening. Daily 10–6.

The Mandeville Gallery, on the Nott Memorial's second floor, shows history-, science-, and art-related exhibits. 518/388–6004.
