Old Hesper Hall (OPSU; demolished) Renovations – Goodwell OK

Description

The former, since-demolished Hesper Hall building at OPSU was improved with W.P.A. funds.

“In 1935, the Oklahoma State Legislature allowed PAMC to purchase WPA bonds to defray the cost of renovating Hesper Hall to become the library and the museum and to build a new dormitory and to repair campus buildings.”

The building has long since been demolished.
