Fossils remain embedded in the Hall of Languages

The Hall of Languages was the first building built on the campus of Syracuse University when it was completed in 1873. The building cost $136,000 to build and housed the entire university for the first sixteen years, as it sat alone on campus. The building was made out of Onondaga Limestone, but interestingly enough, if you look closely you can see fossils embedded in some of the stones that were used for the building.
