However one of the two oldest buildings in academia happens to still be in use on Harvard’s campus, known as Massachusetts Hall, originally built in 1720. It is the oldest building on Harvard’s campus.

It is common place to see drunken students and other mischief makers harassing the statue of Benjamin Franklin in front of Old Main; the most common prank is for students to urinate at the base of the statue.

The statue is commonly referred to as "Ben in the Box" because it appears that Franklin is emerging from an iron box.
