Save the date! Thursday evening, Nov. 2 at the Longaberger Alumni House, guest speaker Barbara Powers of the Ohio History Connection will offer a presentation about Frank Packard, the architect who designed some of the original buildings on campus, built between 1880 and 1900. Come learn about some of the origins of the Ohio State campus!
We will provide a catered dinner to enjoy prior to the presentation, “OSU Origins: Architectural History of Early Campus Buildings.” The program will last about an hour, with time for questions at the end. Dinner will begin at 6 pm and the presentation will start around 6:30.
Ms. Powers has 41 years of experience with historic architectural programs, and has authored several publications on architectural history. Current buildings Hayes Hall and Orton Hall, as well as the famous Armory Gymnasium, are among the buildings we’ll learn about. The program is only $10 / person including the dinner.
