Seismograph Laboratory

The Seismograph Laboratory, located on the east side of Sunset Terrace near People's Avenue, was completed in 1960. The Lab consisted of an arched metal structure 14 x 20 feet with a foundation reaching to bedrock and a roof covered with earth. Sensitive instruments to measure earth tremors were installed and recording instruments were placed in a nearby structure.
