Your gift to the McDowell Columns Preservation Fund provides critical support in maintaining one of the most significant pre-Civil War buildings serving Christian higher education in the mid-atlantic region of the United States. The most significant exterior renovation was completed in 2009 with well over $1 million dollars given to preserve the exterior of the building. The Campaign For Columns saved the building and provided major structural improvements necessary for continued occupancy of the building.
Today, our efforts continue as we pledge again to maintain the heart and soul of our University - McDowell Columns Hall. Providing resources for routine maintenance and a permanent growing endowment will ensure preservation for generations to come. Interior and exterior maintenance issues remain. Join us today in supporting this significant historic icon.
