What about the others Halls?

I'm assuming Monty was out making deals, and Gus, who was the radical in family, didn't get along with the others, especially Monty.

University Pavilion

As Indydad noted the old hall was replaced, but the University Pavilion on the right still stands.


Eight in a row so far, back to Saturday with the dental hall.

Still the same ... but not!

Old McMicken Hall would remain standing until the late 1940s when it was razed in order to build a new hall in the same location.

Completed in 1950, the new (and current) McMicken Hall was of similar design to old McMicken. Designed by famed Cincinnati architect Harry Hake, the hall maintained a Georgian style, repeating the two flanking wings of the previous building and even including 650,000 bricks from old McMicken.
