Marvin Grove

An area established by some of KU's earliest students and faculty, the grove provides 10 acres of mature trees and grounds, which students use as a study and picnic spot. In the late 1870s, Chancellor James Marvin declared a university holiday and led groups of faculty and students on a tree-planting excursion on a rocky campus hillside known as North Hollow. This followed another, smaller tree-planting outing organized by Marvin a year earlier. Additional trees were planted over the years, and the area was renamed Marvin Grove in 1906.
