History

Built in the 1920s, the 2-story building was home to a night club in the 1920s, a restaurant in the 1930s, a textile company, in the 1940s, and the Universal Bowling Corporation from the 1960s to 2003, where it once served as the bowling company’s salesroom.

The college acquired the building in 2003 when it became the Averill & Bernard Leviton A + D Gallery, part of the Art + Design Department. The building also houses the campus mailroom and other campus offices.
