University of Mississippi, Grove Loop, Oxford, Mississippi 38655, United States

Completed in 1859, the observatory is now home to the Center for the Study of Southern Culture.  Alvan Clark and Sons designed an 18½ inch refractor lens for Barnard, but when the Civil War broke out, it instead went to Chicago and is still in use at Northwestern University’s Dearborn Observatory.
