History of Building

The sundial is located at the site of the first Ohio University building, erected in 1807. Here Thomas Ewing and John Hunter were graduated in 1815, the first two graduates of Ohio University. Ewing later served as a trustee of Ohio University, as a United States Senator, as Secretary of Treasury, and as Secretary of Interior, advising four United States Presidents.
