University of Minnesota Buildings - Jones Hall

Jones Hall is one of the fine old buildings on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota. As described in this press release, the building was thoroughly remodeled in 2005.

"[T]his 1901 Renaissance Revival-style building has been updated with central air conditioning, new windows, state of the art communications and electrical capabilities and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) upgrades, among many other improvements. Even though this historically-designated building has been modernized, it still maintains important historic features such as stair treads and banisters, paneled doors, arched ceilings and its terra cotta facade.

"The new and improved Jones Hall will be home to the College of Liberal Arts Language Center and the U of M Freshman Admissions Welcome Center."

Here are some details of the impressive facade.
