World's Formerly Largest Rotating Globe.

World's Formerly Largest Rotating Globe

The globe has been refurbished and put in a well-landscaped park across from the Sorensen Center for the Arts. We were excited to find that the globe is again rotating! The refurbishment was done to honor the colleges centennial anniversary. No longer on Map Hill Drive; now located at 19 Babson College Dr.
