Description

The Bolivia section of the original Babson World Globe outside of Coleman Hall on the Babson College campus. The parts of the globe were hinged and assembled to form the earth's image.

Originally dedicated in 1955, it was refurbished and rededicated on October 2, 1993 and is one of the world's largest free standing globes (28 feet in diameter, weighing 25 tons) capable of revolving on its base and spinning on its axis. The globe is an outdoor exhibit and is available for self-guided tours during daylight hours.
