This Day In Minneapolis History - Old Main ruins after the fire on September 24, 1904
Old Main The University’s first permanent building, Old Main, was erected in 1858 in the area now known as the knoll.
Six months after Old Main opened in 1858, hard economic times after the Panic of 1857 and the impending Civil War forced the school to close. Old Main became a refuge for squatters. A legislative committee that visited the building found a family living in it. The family became surly at having their privacy invaded. Turkeys were in one room, hay in another, and wood-splitting had ruined the floor in the central hall.
In 1867 the legislature voted $15,000 to repair the building and begin instruction in it. The governor signed this act, reorganizing the University, in February 1868.
Old Main was destroyed by fire Sept. 24, 1904. A plaque in front of Shevlin Hall on Pillsbury Drive marks the site of Old Main’s front door.

Football Gopher with old school football helmet by CollageOrama
So does anyone know what happened to the Memorial Stadium flagpole and Goldy Gopher wooden statue that were both located just outside of the University Recreation Center? The flagpole base looks pretty destroyed, and Goldy is gone right off his wooden base. Those North Dakota and Duluth kids were in town last week for the Frozen Four so I have my suspicions.
