Jack Evans Administation Building

Across from the Robert A. Terrell octagon house is the Jack Evans Administration Building. It sits on the campus of Southwestern Christian College. I wasn't able to find when the building was built, but I think it predates the Christian College which moved onto the campus in the 50s.


Below is the Mission for the College taken from their website.

This building looks like the library(?) in your banner. Same style of architecture.

Looks like an interesting building. Like they just had some painting done. I wonder what the tuition's like.

A very masculine looking building - and so well maintained.

It's a very pretty building, and it looks like the school takes very good care of it, too.

I am a graduate of SwCC and I was in shocked when I heard the news about the two buildings destroyed. This school is very educational with its wonderful and interesting history and the wonderful friends and family you make. Southwestern I will always remember!

Sadly, I regret to say that this building caught fire this past weekend (Saturday, Jan. 29, 2008).
