The Vassar College Observatory is located near the eastern edge of the Poughkeepsie, New York college’s campus. Finished in 1865, it was the first building on the college’s campus, older even than the Main Building, with which it shares the status of National Historic Landmark. The observatory’s significance is due to its association with Maria Mitchell, the first widely known woman astronomer in the United States.
