Old Main 150th Celebration


(music) Old Main was the heart of Pennsylvania
Military College, and its spirit lives on today at Widener University. The building opened three years after the Civil War as Pennsylvania Military Academy. Old Main has witnessed the birth of the telephone and the light bulb, a devastating fire, and a societal transformation through 29 U.S. presidents. It was built to house 150 cadets and officers, their library, their mess
hall, washrooms, and classrooms. Today, it is the administrative heart of Widener University. Widener invites you to join us to celebrate the 150th anniversary of
this iconic building. Join us at Homecoming.
