This photo from the 1860's shows the administration building, which still stands today. The buildings surrounding it housed the student dormitories and dining room. These buildings made up all of Fordham University or, as it was known then, St. Johns College. All but the administration building were either torn down or destroyed by a fire at the turn of the century.
