Lessons in the Leaves: A History Tour through the Holy Cross Trees
Expand your knowledge of HC history, mystery, and lore - through its campus beauty.
The planting of commemorative trees, as well as trees for shade and beauty, has long been a tradition at Holy Cross. The campus has (literally) expanded and developed around them. Several trees honor former students, faculty, administrators and distinguished visitors - they tell a story of how these people helped to shape the College into what it is today. This virtual tour highlights some of these trees and the people - and stories - they represent.
