The iconic building of the University of Virginia.

The Rotunda

1895 Fire

A fire destroyed most of the Rotunda on October 27, 1895.[1]

Controversial renovation

Plans are currently being drafted to renovate the Rotunda's leaking roof. This will require several magnolia trees to be removed in order to protect the structure. Over 1,800 signatures were collected on a petition to stop the Board of Visitors from approving such an action. [2]
