Description

The Kent building at Good-Will Hinckley, designed by architect Edgar A. Josselyn, was originally built to house a woodworking shop. Later it was used for dendrology (tree) collections and included "The Four Seasons" tree paintings by Charles D. Hubbard. This was one of three small museums that G.W. Hinckley, an avid naturalist, created on campus. The building was later used for a student vocational shop and currently is in use for maintenance functions.
