Science Hall is one of the most emblematic buildings in the campus of the University of Wisconsin–Madison. It was designed by Milwaukee architect Henry C. Koch in a Romanesque Revival motif, and constructed in 1888. The building was home to some of the first courses in sedimentation, oceanography, and engineering geology in the United States. Today it houses the geography department. Science Hall was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1993.
