Biography/HistoryThe Mechanic Arts Building was built in 1893-94 as part of an appropriation from the state of North Dakota. The first floor of the building was arranged to be used for offices, recitation, drawing and laboratory rooms for work in physics, as well as shops for wood work, machine work, and blacksmithing. The second floor of the building contained a large hall which was used as a drill hall by the Military Department.
