Picture above is of Old Main, the original building at The University of Arizona. The story is that when the school was founded, the students would ride their horses into town to attend classes. They would tie their horses up at the hitching posts outside this building, and sometimes the Native Americans in the area would steal them.
First classes at the U of A: 1891
