No visit to the WPI campus would be complete without stopping to see this strange little building. There are so many rumors and legends about Skull Tomb that at first I wasn't sure what to believe, but it is generally accepted the low, heavy building was constructed without any iron in order to shells sensitive experiments inside from any external magnetism and vibrations. In the early 1900s, Professor Goddard performed his famous experiments here. Although the building isn't currently used for any experiments, it is known as the home of the school's secretive Skull Society.
