The doors this week are majestic
Sturges Hall is one of the main
buildings “on the square” at Ohio
I had taken photos from a distance
and closer. I also had taken day and
night photographs. This one captures
the beauty best of the doors.
The style and period of Sturges Hall
is known as Greek Revival Architecture.
The two main doors match in white
glossy paint. There are long panels
and short ones in the doors.
I enjoy the arch above the doors.
Red glow is from walls and ceilings
within, radiating through this window.
Outside the doors there are two long
tubular-shaped glass “lanterns,” on
each side of the double doors. The
lights look, during the day, rather plain.
The whole building is made of red brick,
with limestone edges and steps leading
up to the various doors. All four sides
have student entrances. There are rod
iron fire escape staircases on two sides
of the building, to exit the other levels.
This building was
October 11, 1855.
