Abstract:
The focal point of ECTTC in 1909 was the large two story administration building topped by a bell tower or cupola. The building was named “Austin Building,” in honor of Herbert E. Austin (1866-1922), a charter faculty member. Through the efforts of Thomas J. Jarvis, former Governor and school trustee, the architect’s plans for a slate roof and cupola were changed to a red tile roof and gold leaf on the dome of the cupola. In 1923, a terrible storm damaged the cupola and it was rebuilt without the gold dome. In 1950, speakers were placed in the cupola, which broadcast melodious chimes across the campus in the morning and evening. In 1968, while the Austin Building was being razed, the cupola accidently fell and was wrecked. A replica was placed on the campus mall.
