At the heart of the University of Missouri is the David R. Francis Quadrangle, which is a cultural symbolic centerpiece of the campus. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Francis Quadrangle continued to be a spot for students and community members gatherings and extracurricular activities.
It was surrounded by red-brick buildings and the architecturally eye-pleasing Jesse Hall, the Quadrangles delivers on scholarly appeal, and the built speaks for itself. The iconic monuments include the six towering columns in the middle of the grassy space. Besides the aesthetic of the columns, the quadrangle also lends access to other important landmarks. These apple of the eye relics stand as the last remaining structures of the original Academic Hall that burned down in 1892.
