Antioch to re-dedicate South Hall

-- One of the three surviving, original historic buildings on campus, South Hall to serve as headquarters of new Antioch College --

On Thursday, January 14, 2010, Antioch College will mark yet another step in the revitalization of the College with a ceremony to mark the re-dedication of South Hall, one of the three surviving, original historic buildings on the campus. South Hall will serve as the headquarters of the new Antioch College. South Hall sits on the recently dedicated One Morgan Place adjacent to Livermore Street. Appropriate permitting is under way.

The ceremony will take place at 6:00pm on January 14, 2010 at South Hall. Following a ribbon cutting, there will be a presentation by Scott Sanders, College Archivist, and John Feinberg ’70, Architectural Conservator and Preservation Planner. Mr. Sanders and Mr. Feinberg will trace the architectural history and development of the Antioch College campus. Using campus maps and historic photographs from the College archives, they will contrast and compare the different eras of campus development, the representations of those eras in the history of American architecture, and the overall cultural and historical significance of the buildings and landscapes of Antioch College.

In addition to a photographic exhibit of the four original buildings that formed the Antioch College campus, Mr. Sanders and Mr. Feinberg will also give a report on current and future projects to renovate and preserve the College’s historical physical plant and campus integrity.

I saw the video of Mr. Feinberg explaining the necessary work and I was impressed. Antioch may be doing this right. If they concentrate on saving those beautiful old buildings, it will be a service to the community as well as the college. The student union? I'd donate to bulldoze it myself. An eyesore.
