Old Main

As the first building on McMurry University’s campus, Old Main has been a symbol of McMurry University since its founding in 1923. After almost four years of vacancy, the restoration is complete and Old Main was rededicated on Saturday, October 11, 2014, during Homecoming. An all alumni photograph in front of the historic building followed the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

During McMurry’s recent Shaping the Future capital campaign the need to restore this historic building was identified. The restoration process brings Old Main into the 21st century, while keeping the spirit of the building alive. Noted as being the last historic building in Abilene to be restored by the Abilene Preservation League, the McMurry community has seen this prominent landmark come back to life as classes resumed and professors and staff moved back into the building.

As an addition to the campus landmark Radford Memorial Auditorium, the Welcome Center will provide a central location where alumni and other visitors to the campus can enter and be directed to departments they may wish to contact. Construction was completed in October 2009.
