Stratton Hall was built in 1904 and named after mining millionaire Winfield Scott Stratton, a trustee and benefactor of the Mines.¬†An early student at Mines, Stratton discovered the Independence Lode near Victor, Colorado on July 4, 1891, and became the Cripple Creek district’s first millionaire in 1894. Stratton gave Mines its first philanthropic gift of $25,000. He was appointed as a Mines trustee in 1899 and was elected president of the board in 1901.

This three-story building was one of the first buildings on campus and its structure has remained mostly unchanged. It currently houses the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics and the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Division.
