The columns at Northwestern are remnants of the Bullard Mansion, a plantation home that was one of the original buildings of Louisiana State Normal School. There were once four columns, but myth has it that a visiting governor's wife declared they were "not artistic," so one was taken down.  The columns stand in the old quad now, no longer a quad, after the loss of two buildings to fire in the last 20 years.   The three columns have become an icon at NSU.  For a view of the old Bullard Mansion, click here.     For another, moodier dusk view click here.
