Photo of the Week

The year is 1926, and the new Johnson Hall is visible at the end of the long, unpaved driveway. Construction began in the fall of 1924, and the College moved from downtown Raleigh to its current location in January of 1926. The original quadrangle contained six brick buildings of Georgian architecture: four dormitories, Belk Dining Hall, and Johnson Hall. Three temporary wooden buildings east of the quadrangle were used as classrooms and auditorium, and in 1928 a temporary wooden gymnasium was added.

  1. I love this picture! It is a wonderful testament to Meredith’s preservation of her historic past..and a beckoning Johnson Hall still welcomes future Meredith women today, as it has for so many years. The landscape has changed but Meredith’s legacy continues. Hooray for Angels everywhere!
