James Wilson Hall

WSU's James Wilson Hall was named for the Secretary of Agriculture who served from 1897 to 1913. The building has served as not only a horticultural and agricultural facility, but for a time as military barracks and a vocational training facility for soldiers.

I haven't walked around that much of WSU, so I'm enjoying your pics.

Hi BoiseDive! The building is once again horticultural and agriculture classes...I think it just served as barracks during WWI and WWII, but I am not certain of the dates.

Hi Sherry...so glad you are enjoying the pics! As an aside, I don't think I have ever met so many 'Sherry's' as I have since we moved here! I was the only one I knew until we moved to Idaho! hehe
