The Curious History of Pemberton Hall

Friday, 17 April, 2020 @ 01:30 PM - 03:00 PM | Cost:FREE

This four-story building was the 2nd building built on Eastern's campus after the iconic Old Main Castle and was finished in 1908.  It included parlors, fireplaces, fourth floor maid's quarters, a matron's apartment, and a dining room.  It's registered as a historic landmark, due to it being the first women's college residence hall on the campus of a State University.   You are invited to come hear the story of how it came to be and the impact it has had on the thousands of residents who have lived there.  Hear about the lore of its haunting to the distinguished visitors it has hosted. Use visitor parking (or staff/student parking with pass), walk west past Old Main to main entrance on east side of Pemberton.

Please register by 4/15/2020.
