Did You Know: Oaks Ames Memorial Hall

DID YOU KNOW that June 13 , 1885 The American Architect and Building News, then the leading architectural journal in the country, published the findings of a survey to determine the ten best U. S. buildings.  Seventy-five architects responded, mentioning 175 buildings.  Richardson’s Trinity Church in Boston was declared the best building in America, and Easton’s Oakes Ames Memorial Hall came in tenth.  Of the buildings selected, Richardson had designed five of them.
