Nestled within residential neighborhoods, the private, liberal arts college is affiliated with the United Methodist Church and got its name through a 1913 merger between Baldwin University and German Wallace College. But while the history of the college is steeped in the visions of the founders of those two institutions - John Baldwin and James Wallace - it is the architecture around campus that merges the past with the present.
Marting Hall is the oldest classroom building and was saved from a wrecking-ball several years ago through a successful fundraising drive by alumni to retain the then badly deteriorating building. Bagley Hall was once the building that housed the Cleveland Browns, who had their training facility on campus. And a visitor may get an eerie feeling inside Kohler Hall - the residence for conservatory students - it is rumored to be haunted, as the building was used as a hospital for Civil War veterans and home to a mental institution. There is a particular majesty to the architecture of the Lindsay Crossman Chapel.
While taking a trek through campus is the preferable way to appreciate the history, Assad does a great job in providing an alternative for those who cannot travel to Berea. The book is also an excellent means for alumni, students and city residents to learn more about things they may breeze past on a daily basis.
It's a must-read for Baldwin-Wallace students, and an interesting historical account for anyone who just may want to find out more.
