Erected 1695-1699

This first building at the College of William and Mary is the oldest college building in the United States. According to an 18th-century author, it was "first modeled by Sir Christopher Wren, adapted to the Nature of the Country by the Gentlemen there." Having survived two wars and three fires, the Wren Building continues to be used by the faculty and students of the College.

Restored, 1931, through the generosity of John D. Rockefeller Jr.

Once inside, follow the signs to the Wren Building Information Center. There is a wheelchair accessible elevator on the opposite side of the building.
