There actually still isn’t much to see, to be honest, though the views of the monuments in the distance is something else.

Prior to the fire, Mulledy and Maquire Hall were consorts, with very similar late Federal period architectural detail, flanking Ryan Hall, as they originally flanked Old South. The new Mulledy roof spoiled the symmetry of the composition. The famous Civil War Brady photo images taken from Virginia clearly show the original roofline. See the link for a photo of the original appearance of Mulledy, taken the morning after the fire: https://repository.library.georgetown.edu/bitstream/handle/10822/551447/gu_archives_campus_00010.jpg?sequence=1&isAllowed=y
