Old Harvard Yard Red Oak
This pen series comes from a Red oak tree (Quercus rubra) that stands in Old Harvard Yard. Old Harvard Yard is home to many of the university's freshman dormitories. It is also home to Massachusetts Hall, which was built in 1720 and thought to be one of the oldest academic buildings in the United States. The University President's offices are located in the first floors of Massachusetts Hall. Across the Yard, stands the John Harvard Statue or "The Statue of Three Lies."
This branch was removed January 2014 to ensure the health and beauty of the canopy in Old Harvard Yard.
