Description
The Cannon was cast in Seville, Spain in 1720. It bears the insignia of Philip V of Spain in bas-relief. The Cannon was brought to Pratt from the walls of Morro Castle in Havana, Cuba in 1899. Its location on campus has changed over the years. For decades it faced the Main Building near the location of the flagpole. It has become a symbol of Pratt: the athletic teams are called the Cannoneers and a residence hall is called Cannoneer Court.
