Bascom Hill Historic District

Surrounded by the natural beauty of this campus, a student named John Muir developed a love of the outdoors that would touch not only his own life, but those of future generations. Muir left the University of Wisconsin in 1863 and became one of the most famous naturalists in America. His writings influenced the creation of our national park system and convinced the expanding nation that resources such as the great redwoods of California were worth preserving. These surroundings, which so inspired Muir, have helped to shape generations of environmental leaders who have followed in Muir's footsteps and are still working to ensure that the beauty of nature will endure.
