The Great Stride: MIT Moves to Cambridge exhibit

In June 1916, MIT moved from Boston’s Copley Square to its current location on the banks of the Charles River, an occasion that was marked by three full days of festivities. An exhibit in the Maihaugen Gallery in 2016 documented those events, and celebrated the people who designed MIT’s new home, those who built it, and those who raised funds for its construction.

The exhibit was part of MIT2016: Celebrating a Century in Cambridge.
