Appalachian State University: D.D. Dougherty Hall – Boone NC

Description

The Dauphin Disco Dougherty Memorial Library, now known as D.D. Dougherty Hall, was constructed by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) at what was then known as Appalachian State Teachers College in Boone, North Carolina. The building was completed in 1935.

Historic maps and modern imagery suggest that the building has since been expanded.
