Main Hall at Lawrence University (1853) was the first building in Appleton to be entered in the National Register of Historic Places (1974) and is one of the few mid-Nineteenth-Century structures remaining. Rumored to have served as a station on the Underground Railroad, it also was the site of a memorial service following the assassination of President Lincoln. In 1911, William Howard Taft addressed students and townspeople from its front steps.
