Bartsch Hall

For many years this building was a private residence, commonly known as the "Jones House" and later the "Haas House." In 1986 the university purchased it for use of the Teacher Education and Graduate Education programs.

Initially known as "West Hall," it was renamed in 1990 for Silas Bartsch, a long-time professor of education and former director of the professional development program. Bartsch also served as interim president of the university during 1982-1983.
