UVM's original college building was constructed on the present site of the Old Mill in 1802. Designed by John Johnson of Burlington, the rectangular, four-story, hip-roofed, brick structure was modeled after Nassau Hall on the campus of PrincetonUniversity. The building contained a two-story chapel, recitation rooms, library, museum, medical hall, chemical laboratory, and forty-six student dormitory rooms. Except for a brief period in 1813-1814 when the college's activities were suspended during the war with Great Britain, the structure remained the sole academic building of the University until it was destroyed by fire in 1824.
