Inscription.  The small Pine and Elm buildings are the only two buildings left from the Ivyside Amusement Park. The Elm Building also wins the prize as the most remodeled building on campus. Originally the shooting gallery for the Ivyside Park, the building held the chemistry lab in the 1950s and 1960s. After the construction of the Science Building in the 1970s, the art studios were moved to the Elm Building. Art students remodeled the outside of the building many times during the 1970s and 1980s, and in 1985, the exterior was given a brick casing to match the other buildings on campus. The parking lot in front of the Elm Building is the former site of the large swimming pool from the amusement park.
