1. Kimball Hall Marker
Inscription. Kimball was the school's dining hall. Built in 1927, it honored the Kimball family of Massachusetts. In 1907, Helen F. Kimball purchased a 200-acre farm for the school's use.

Palmer students learned and practiced proper dining etiquette during their meals. Any departure from acceptable table manners resulted in immediate disciplinary action and possible removal from the dining hall.

The basement of Kimball originally housed the industrial and mechanical arts classes.
