Forrest Building

The Forrest Building is a building of the Dalhousie University, one of the most important universities in Canada. Its construction began in April 1887. Its construction was financed by Sir William Young, ex-chief justice and well-known political man of Nova Scotia. His $20 000 donation helped the project a lot.

Until 1914, it was the only building of the Dalhousie University. It was called the "new Dalhousie College", because the University was located before at the "Grand Parade".
