Inscription.  Pine (1888) and Spruce (1889) Cottages are reminders of an earlier era in Penn State's history, when a fledgling institution offered on-campus residences as part of faculty compensation, and when students and teachers mingled in a family-like setting, these cottages were used in the early 1900s for sorority housing, and still later for academic and administrative offices.
 
Erected by Penn State Alumni Association.
