Built in the late 1800’s, Keller Hall stands as an iconic jewel on the campus of Newberry College. Over the years the building has serviced the college in a variety of roles, but in recent years had fallen into disrepair. In 2004, the Trustees of the college determined that stabilization of the structure was needed and funded the project. The scope of the stabilization included replacement of the existing roof, new exterior windows and doors, and re-pointing of the masonry façade. Particular attention was given to the reinforcing and replacement of the existing roof and floor structural members to strengthen seismic resistance. As a separate phase, the interiors were renovated to accommodate classrooms and offices for the Department of Religion and Philosophy. Where possible, the original heart pine flooring and fireplace mantels were restored and reused.
