Campus Of Dartmouth College
Dartmouth College is located in the rural town of Hanover in the Upper Valley of the Connecticut River in the New England state of New Hampshire. Dartmouth's 269-acre (1.09 km2) campus centered on The Green makes the institution the largest private landowner of the town of Hanover, and its landholdings and facilities are valued at an estimated $419 million. Dartmouth's campus buildings vary in age from several early 19th century buildings to a number of ongoing construction projects. Most of Dartmouth's buildings are designed in the Georgian style, a theme which has been preserved in recent architectural additions.
