Appalachian State University: Boys’ Dormitory (demolished) – Boone NC

Description

The Work Projects Administration (WPA) constructed a boys’ dormitory at what was then known as Appalachian State Teachers College (A.S.T.C.). Work was completed in 1939. Per The News and Observer, “On a hill immediately back of the [new] stadium is the nearly completed 65-room boys’ dormitory. Well designed rooms, latest type heating, plumbing will place the brick building at par with the best student housing.”

The facility, which was located toward the southwest part of the campus, by the coordinates provided below, has been demolished.
