Main Hall Cited in Annual Magazine Architecture Contest

For the third time in four years, a Lawrence University building has been cited in Fox Cities Magazine’s “Great Spaces Great Places” contest.

Lawrence’s venerable Main Hall was the top vote-getter in the magazine’s Best Historic Landmark category. Home to the humanities, the 157-year-old building and campus centerpiece was hailed as an architectural “icon in the Valley” by one member of the judging panel.

Last year, Lawrence’s newly opened Warch Campus Center copped the Great Spaces Great Places’ Best New Construction title, while Alexander Gymnasium received the Best Historic Landmark honors in the 2007 contest.
