Silliman Hall/Monday Doorways


Silliman Hall, built in 1903, is the oldest building at Silliman University in Dumaguete City.  This building serves as the university's Anthropology Museum.  Silliman U was the first American private school in the Philippines established by Presbyterians in 1901.

Beautiful photo of this historic building. Would be nice to visit your country one day. Im sure there's lots of wonderful things to see.

PS: A "Shot Tower" was used in the past to make lead shot for firearms. They poured molten lead down the tower and the little spheres that formed falling down were cooled in water, graded according to size and used in making ammunition.

The architecture looks very much like what is seen in southern United States. It's a wonderful choice for today's meme.
