Athens, Ohio

Lindley Hall, a girls' dormitory housing 200 girls.  Built in 1917.  New wing completed in 1940.  Named for first President of Ohio University, Jacob Lindley.

It was near this point in the Great Hock-Hocking River, theat early pioneers landed and located the site of Athens and Ohio University.

The University Library, named in honor of a recent dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, has a capacity of 250,000 volumes.
