This is Slocum Hall.
The building is so pretty
from a distance.
As mentioned about
other OWU buildings,
it features
Greek Revival Architecture.
The set of doors has
Two rectangle windows,
Panels of glass with
frames around them.
The awning structure
above made of the same
blue limestone as most
of the buildings on campus.

Ohio Wesleyan University,
built on land originally a
resort, sulphur spring
and when it closed,
Methodist minister
suggested educational
college be established.

Townspeople collected
money to purchase
Mansion House Hotel.

This post is part of the
