Spooner Hall Facts

Spooner Hall is one of two matching halls, Camden Hall being the other. It was named for Lewis C. Spooner, the local state representative in 1913. It was designed by Clarence Johnston and built in 1913 for $50,000.

Spooner Hall is a four-story building with a raised ground floor, Kasota stone trim, and 1/1 sash. Its hipped roof has wide overhanging eaves with curvilinear rafter tails and gabbed dormers. The south facade has a series of wide tudor-arched windows that light a projecting sun into the Spooner lounge.

In 1960, Spooner Hall was remodeled and from 1990–1993 the hall was totally refurbished. It remains a popular residence hall among Morris students who appreciate the gracious lounges and large rooms characteristic of its original design.
