Photo of the Week: Wells Hall fire (1905)

MSU Archives

Spectators watch Wells Hall burn during the 1905 fire. This was the first Wells Hall on campus. There have been two since.

Here's what the first Wells Hall looked like. It was built in 1877, standing where the current library is, and was the main dorm. The second Wells Hall was taken down to eventually expand the library.
