Old Main: Looking back 30 years later

Old Main Burns - Photo courtesy SHS University ArchivesThirty years ago this month a fire consumed “Old Main” on the SHSU campus. Many of us remember being rousted out of bed and heading to the hill to watch as flames consumed this historic building. The Houstonian has published an article looking back at that fateful night:


University community members remember the night that a fire destroyed the Old Main building

On one cold night David Clements was walking back to his dorm when he saw smoke billowing out of a historic campus building. Old Main was on fire.

The freshman called the fire department to report what he saw. Firefighters from surrounding cities had to be called in because of limited staff at the Huntsville station. The wood and brick framed building had already been engulfed in flame for 20 min. It was too late to save.

Thirty years ago, on Feb. 12, 1982, Old Main fell for good.

Support Lyndsey Hagan at Walk for Breast Cancer

When I heard about the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer I knew that this was something that I had to participate in. I am walking in honor of my aunt, Linda DeLange Bennett, who lost her battle with breast cancer on November 3, 2010. On April 16-17, I’ll spend the weekend walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. The walk is 39.3 miles long and I will spend the next few months training, fundraising, and preparing for this event. I’m very excited about doing it.
