Corwin Hall Moved on Rails

Corwin Hall, the red brick building east of the Woodrow Wilson School, formerly stood where Robertson Hall is now located. When Princeton recruited architect Minoru Yamasaki to build the new home for the Wilson School, he insisted on having the corner location for his monumental building. So, in 1963 Corwin Hall was moved on rails almost 200 feet to make room for the new structure.
