Carson Hall on Warren Wilson College Campus demolished

Carson Hall, the oldest building on Warren Wilson College’s campus, was demolished  last week.

The building was closed all of last year due to a mold infestation, while the administration and Board of Trustees planned for its

decommission and razing to take place in the summer.

The building has been a part of the campus since 1926, when it was built as Anne C. Carson’s gift to the college.

Whether the soon-to-be-empty space will be used for the new building, or as a scenic viewing spot for the mountains, remains to be decided.
