Clark Hall, Case Western Reserve University

Richard Morris Hunt
1891-92




Queen Anne style

The Queen Anne style was popular in the late 19th century, though more typically in residences. This building in a variation of Queen Anne style was one of the first buildings on the Case Western Reserve University campus.
 

Views of the front and decorative portal

The building was originally part of the college for women and contained classrooms, library, offices, and a chapel on the second floor. The three-story building is in sandstone and buff brick.
 

Views of the side (southwest)

Note the elaborate dormer windows on the side as well as the large window with tracery. This window was the dominant feature in the original chapel, although today the room is used for lectures.
