Exhibit details the evolution of the University of South Carolina campus
The evolution of the University of South Carolina campus is the subject of an exhibit at the South Caroliniana Library through Nov. 30.
Titled "Evolution of a Campus: Expansion and Demolition at the University of South Carolina," the exhibit will feature a series of 19th-century lithographs and 20th-century aerial photographs of the campus. The photographs include a rarely seen aerial view toward the river that is dramatically different from the existing west campus.
Two cases display images of university buildings that have been demolished over the years, including the original president's house, housing for married World War II veterans and Carolina's original football field.
A third case displays images of renovations that have been done around campus, including the football stadium and the historic Horseshoe.
The South Caroliniana Library is located on the historic Horseshoe at the University of South Carolina. The library is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 8:30 - 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday, 8:30 a.m. - 8 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. For more information, contact West at 803-777-5158.
