the Chi Psi Upsilon Pagoda

the Chi Psi Upsilon pagoda

The pagoda is probably the most easily recognizable symbol of the Seminary. The building has many elements of detail that suggest it is an authentic Japanese building, but there are a few details that are missing. In fact, like several other buildings on campus, the plans came from the book of house plans the Cassedys bought at the 1893 Columbian World Exposition, and it was built in 1904.

The interior of the building boasted many Oriental features, including a Buddhist statue. The building is in relatively good condition today, but the roof needs work.
