Description

Dismantled cement block from the smokestack of the Physical Plant Building at Mary Washington College. This block has a thin white tile covering on one side to form part of the lettering "MWC." This 168-foot stack had two-thirds removed in May of 2008 because of strains on its metal support bands. The dismantling of the smokestack marked the end of the institution's (and region's) most visible landmarks.
