More Information

Hallowed Halls: Roanoke College’s 175 Years is a new feature main gallery exhibit that looks back at one of Salem’s oldest and most influential institutions. The exhibit traces Roanoke College’s history from its earliest days arriving in Salem in a wagon, through the struggles of war and cultural revolutions, to the institution it is today. Guests will learn about the growth of the campus, the student body, athletics, and the academic experience—and the presidents who led the way. Hallowed Halls opens Tuesday, September 19, and will run through March 10, 2018. The exhibit was curated by Museum Assistant Director Alex Burke—a 2016 graduate of Roanoke College—with assistance from Linda Miller, Roanoke College’s archivist. Burke will provide guided tours and share additional stories about the College on the exhibit’s opening day, September 19, from 10 AM to 4 PM.
