In keeping with the tradition of Adirondack resourcefulness and independence, many of the early buildings at Paul Smith's College were constructed not only with local labor and materials, but also by the College’s employees and students! Some of the structural materials, such as the wood and stone were prepared on-site, being milled or cut from the College's sawmill and quarry. As Paul Smith’s College continues to renovate and rehabilitate its older facilities as well as construct new buildings, the College retains and promotes the Adirondack style, design, motif, and materials. The College believes the beauty and richness of this region is an essential part of the Paul Smith’s experience. The following describes the main buildings on campus in alphabetical order.
