This walk runs along the front of the campus where Elizabeth Moore Hall is placed.  Sycamore tree in the foreground 'cut down 1963', which is one of the two largest trees on the campus today, was planted by the Rev. J. R. Moore as was the other tree, the maple, in the Circle.  He planted another tree on the Circle which died many years ago.  Rev. Moore came to Morgantown as Principal of the Monongalia Academy in 1852 and died in 1864.  The Falling Run Road which runs along the edge of picture is now University Avenue.  This is the E. Moore Hall sycqamore still growing as of February 22, 1983.  References to the tree being planted by Rev. Moore is probably an error.  The tree is shown in photos from 1888 as a fully grown tree at least 50 years old.
