The  David  Dale  Owen  laboratory  is  an  outstanding  example  of  Gothic  Revival  architecture.  Built  in  1859,  it  features  a  slate  roof,  a  returned  boxed  cornice,  and  an  octagonal  cupola  with  decorative brackets  and  a  conical  roof.  It  was  built  by  David  Dale  Owen  as  a  scientific  lab,  but  was  never  used,  as  he  died  in  1860.
