Sattler Hall

This was the first building constructed after moving the campus from downtown Fresno to Chestnut Avenue in 1959, and for many years it did not have a formal name. In 1973 it was named in honor of Michael Sattler (ca. 1490-1527), a leader of the Swiss Anabaptist movement. Sattler was the author of the 1527 Schleitheim Confession, the earliest confession of faith of the Swiss Anabaptists. He was martyred for his faith in 1527.
