Earlham College’s Tyler Hall opened in 1907 as one of the two Andrew Carnegie academic libraries in Indiana. Over the years, this iconic building has served many purposes, but in 2002 both the basement and second floors were empty while the first floor was used for occasional music programs on campus. A recent “facelift” to the once underused building has brought the building back to its iconic status and is now being recognized as one of the “first stops” on Earlham’s Campus for incoming students and alumni. The renovation, which was complete in the summer of 2013, infused over $5.5 million dollars into the building by upgrading the mechanical/electrical/plumbing systems, renovating the interior to meet the college’s current needs and bringing the exterior facade and walk-ways back to life. This project will pursue LEED certification. Tyler Hall now serves as Earlham Colleges Admissions, Financial Aid, Institutional Advancement, Marketing and Communication operations office.
Please join the Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce, Earlham College, Shiel Sexton Company, Whisenhunt Construction and Sodexho in highlighting the building’s history and recent renovation by attending the Chamber Networking Night at Tyler Hall (801 National Road West, Richmond, IN 47374) on December 12th from 5pm to 6:30pm. Tours of the facility will be available and refreshments will be provided by Sodexho.
