Wofford’s landscape in 1963

Written By: Phillip Stone - Jan• 17•13

Here’s what the college looked like fifty years ago this winter, in 1963.


Wofford College Aerial Photo - March 1963


Main Building is, of course, in the top center section, as are the original houses on either side of it.  The “old library” – now the Daniel Building, and the original section of Milliken Science Hall are across from Main.  DuPre Residence Hall, which was brand new, and Shipp Residence Hall, then under construction, are to the right of (behind) Main.  Greene Hall is next to Daniel, and Andrews Field House is across from Greene.

A number of other buildings are gone – Wightman Hall, Snyder Hall, the old ROTC building, and the old canteen (all at the top edge of the picture) and Carlisle Hall (at the bottom.)

And, of course, there are plenty of buildings that have been constructed since 1963.
