105 Years Ago

“New” Crossley Hall is one hundred five years old this month. In brief, here’s what the newspaper had to say about it.

from The Hermonite, vol. XXV, no. 1; p. 11  (September 1911).


The loss of old Crossley has been more than replaced by the new Crossley that graces our campus. The Crossley men [it became a coed building in 1974 –ed.] are to be congratulated on their new dormitory.

Note: From blueprints to finished building, Crossley was constructed in less than nine months time. Here is an image from June 1911, showing construction progress. Happy 105th birthday, Crossley Hall!
