Since its founding in 1885, Rollins College has been at the heart of learning, culture and architectural beauty in Central Florida. The establishment of Rollins on Lake Virginia provided the perfect location for a truly beautiful campus to unfold. Over the years, the College's planners have succeeded in combining the man-made beauty of campus buildings with the natural beauty of the lakeside setting. The consistent use of Spanish Mediterranean architecture has created a sense of harmony and unity that is the essence of the campus. This collection consists of historical photographs of buildings and grounds, including: dedications, construction, exterior and interior design and decoration, and landscape scenes.
