CU Boulder's Old Main is one of Boulder's oldest buildings. Old main housed not only the first classrooms but the president's home, the library, and the janitor's quarters. While most buildings or campus have shelf-like holds, Old Main has a more natural rock look and feel because they used chunks rather than slabs of sandstone to construct it.
This is on the North side of Norlin Quad midway along.
It is the building that has a sign that reads "Old Main".
