University of Notre Dame: Main and South Quadrangles Historic District
Notre Dame Main Building 5, South Bend, Indiana, US. The University of Notre Dame's Main Administration Building (known as the Main Building or the "Golden Dome") houses various administrative offices, including the Office of the President. Construction of the Main Building began in 1864 and was completed in 1865. The building stood for 14 years before being destroyed by fire in the spring of 1879.
Immediately after the fire, the University took action, selecting a new design by Willoughby J. Edbrooke and commencing construction. The current Main Building was completed before the fall semester of 1879. The Golden Dome that caps the Main Building was a gift from the sisters of adjacent Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame's sister school.
