I was 7 years old and sat on my father’s shoulders watching the flames inside as it was damaged by fire….
I lived in Old Main for two years and loved it. I just happened to be in Philippi the day after the fire. We were coming up from Charleston and heard it on the news. A heartbreaking day.
I lived in Old Main 1 1/2 years.
I have wonderful memories!!!!❤️❤️❤️
Loved Old Main! Was so sad when it burned!
Spent time there in early 70's.. Fond memories...
Sat in front of Old Main by the fountain many days writing letters home ( before email and FaceTime!)
I lived in Old Main and was a Resident Advisor while there.
I was a student there when it went up in 🔥! Beautiful building, had the pleasure of seeing it inside! Great memories at AB! 🙏❤️🎈
I have a hunk of old main sitting on my chest of drawers.
I lived in Old Main my Junior year.
I had a religion class with Dr. Packer in the lecture hall. I could not resist looking out the large window at the view of town.
It was a beautiful old building. I wandered through it a couple of times my freshman year when it was being renovated, and was there the night it burned down… it was a sad and scary thing to watch. So many wonderful memories of my time there.
I was there when it burned down.
Remember "The Cave" in the basement, and the nursing labs. Many fond memories around that building.
