Stop #1: Trinity College Rocky Ridge Campus

Frederick Law Olmsted

The Rocky Ridge space became the home for the new Trinity College campus when the state offered the Board $600,000 for their original College Hill campus. Trinity College begrudgingly took the money as they would likely be in debt by the end of the year. College Hill then became the home of the Connecticut Capitol Building, while the college moved to Gallows Hill.
