                       Buildings Then and Now
                                Did You Know That There Are Similar Buildings
                                                                                                    on Campus?

West Hall, opened in 1899 and burned February 14, 1938. Goodwin Hall opened in 1911.
West Hall wings were two stories and the center 3 stories.
Goodwin Hall wings were 3 stories and the center 4 stories.
Vines were growing on the walls of West Hall so it's hard to see the similarities
so I've posted the burnt remains below to help exemplify.
So West Hall was a smaller version of Goodwin Hall or you could say that they used
the plans from West Hall and added an extra floor for Goodwin Hall...

And Upper School is similar to Joiner Hall!
Joiner Hall was built in 1930 and Hoey Hall in 1938. According to John and Brenda, the interior
of both buildings are very much alike. So there's the possibility that in order to rebuild "West
Hall" quickly, the building plans for Joiner Hall were used with slight modifications instead of
hiring architects to draw up new plans which would further delay rebuilding.

All Hoey Hall pictures are courtesy NCSD Museum and larger pictures can be seen here. The
Goodwin and Joiner Hall pictures are from the NCSD 75th Anniversary pamphlet.
