The Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. Founded in 1874. Guggenheim Hall, built in 1906 with its skyward golden-domed tower visible from town, it immediately became the focal point of campus and continues to be an iconic symbol of Mines. The golden dome is one of the most photographed landmarks on campus. Each year, new freshman have a tradition of climbing up Lookout Mountain with one white rock to refresh the school's "M" that is featured above campus.
