50th Things - #43As we approach the 50th anniversary of UC Santa Cruz in 2015, here are 50 things you might not know about the campus.

UCSC's Cowell Lime Works Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Lime, produced at the campus site by burning limestone in large redwood-fired kilns, was critical in the manufacture of cement and was used in the rebuilding of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake.
