Gwynn Hall, University of Missouri – Columbia MO

Description

Gwynn Hall is immediately to the east of the Memorial Union, a memorial to students who fought in WW1. Gwynn Hall was built in 1922, but was not completed, in fact was a shell. It was completed by the PWA in 1936 and housed the Home Economics dept which moved there from the Niedermeyer Building in downtown Columbia that was and still is the oldest building in Columbia. It was dedicated in the same ceremony as Walter Williams Hall, Townsend Hall(the Education building), the Engineering Lab, Stephens Hall, and the large Northwest addition to Ellis Library and at the dedication it was stated that its completion was a great advance for Home Economics Education at MU. It is currently being renovated.
