OHIO WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY: MERRICK HALL

Merrick Hall is one of the oldest buildings on the Ohio Wesleyan University campus. It was constructed between 1868 and 1873. Merrick Hall, named after Frederick Merrick who was the president of OWU from 1860-1837, was originally constructed through an endowment fund of $40,000.00. Merrick Hall was shut down for more than 25 years due to restoration needs. An alumni couple gifted $8 million dollars to fund the restoration project.

ACP of Ohio was selected to work with Lincoln Construction to provide the setting of the door frames, drywall assemblies, and acoustical ceilings. The 19,600 square foot interior now has updated unique ceiling systems and accented walls to showcase the modern era while still maintaining the original 142 year-old blue limestone fa├žade that was quarried locally.
