Vincennes University demolishes dormitoryJanuary 26, 2021
By The Associated Press
VINCENNES — A longtime residence hall on Vincennes University's main campus has been demolished after it was severely damaged during a wind storm last April.
The university says the 54-year-old Harrison Hall came down earlier this month. The two-story, 63,454-square-foot (19,341-square-meter) building had housed male students and also contained administrative offices.
A plan for the site has not yet been determined, said Linda Waldroup, the school's vice president of financial services.
“That is an exceptional spot on our campus. Whatever goes there will be a state-of-the-art facility for Vincennes University that will help to attract and retain students,” she said.
Harrison Hall was built in 1967 on the campus in Vincennes, located about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Evansville. It was named for university founder William Henry Harrison, who served as the first governor of the Indiana Territory from 1801 to 1812.
He was elected the ninth president of the United States in 1840.
