Blackwater/Ruffner Hall

Details

Venue Website:

Ruffner Hall is the name given to a building on the campus of Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. The original Ruffner Hall was built in 1839 and gradually expanded along with the school over several decades, to eventually include its iconic Rotunda, until its completion in 1907. The building was eventually destroyed in a fire on April 24, 2001. The then-Longwood College began to rebuild the structure, and it was reopened just before the fourth anniversary of the fire, on April 23, 2005. The new Ruffner, in contrast to the old, has a basement to increase instructional space.[1] The building is sometimes informally referred to as the Rotunda; in fact, Ruffner Hall includes two wings on either side of the Rotunda.
