Description

A view of entrance to Ferry Hall, WSU Building #8. The upturned soil in the foreground indicates the recent completion of the structure. Built in 1892, Ferry Hall was the first large building to be constructed on campus. Designed to be a dorm, it housed men and women on separate floors. In 1897, there was a kitchen fire which got out of control and the building burned down. Another building was constructed in the same place two years later designed by G. W. Bullard. The new building with its Georgian facade would keep the name (sometimes called New Ferry Hall) and also serve as a dorm. The building remained until the mid 70's, when it was taken down. A last artifact of Ferry Hall still exists in the form of the Gazebo next to Murrow Hall, which was the old bell tower.
