Walking Tour of Historical South Orange campus produced for Charter Week 2018 by Dr. Bryan Meadows. The tour booklet and those making the physical journey around campus will provide some historical insights into the buildings and structures that make up the South Orange campus. As you are likely aware, the South Orange campus is not the original campus which was located in Madison, New Jersey. The university took up residence on this site starting in 1860. Historically, Seton Hall has also operated campus locations in Paterson and Jersey City. In present day, the Seton Hall Law School is located in downtown Newark, New Jersey. A new campus for the School of Medicine is being established in Nutley, New Jersey. The tour is organized to follow the chronological development of the South Orange campus over time. It can be divided into three sections that outline the development of the campus chronologically: (1) Early Development of South Orange campus; (2) Post-War Years 1940-1960s; (3) Re-orientation of Campus (1970s – 2000s).
