After the 1883 fire that destroyed the old campus (Seminary Square), Dunn's Woods became the center of the Indiana University campus. Dunn's Woods, a twenty-acre beech and maple forest is the heart of Indiana University and an excellent place to observe nature, reflect, study, or relax. This wooded oasis hosts a diverse ecosystem, harboring rabbits, squirrels, wildflowers, mushrooms, Cooper’s hawks, and the northern short-tailed shrew. Native trees such as walnut, sycamore, basswood, buckeye, beech, maple, ash, oak, and hickory grow in Dunn's Woods.
