Dana Hall (1966-present)

Dana Hall construction, 1966

Built specifically for the College’s Biology Department, Dana Hall was dedicated on October 8, 1966. The building, situated on the northeast corner of College and Louther Streets, was designed by Elmer H. Adams and built at a cost of $1.3 million.

The building is named in honor of Charles A. Dana, whose foundation made a $300,000 grant toward the project. The Longwood Foundation contributed an additional $480,000 for the construction of this building. The Biology Department has been the building’s primary occupant since its opening.
