Preserve Historic Lincoln Hall
This petition made change with 718 supporters!
The University of Nevada has announced plans to remove Lincoln Hall to make room for a new residence hall.
Built in 1896, Lincoln Hall is one of the oldest, continually operating residence hall on the West coast. From founding the University's first fraternities at the turn of the last century to housing cadets during World War 2, Lincoln Hall has always been in the background housing the students the University later brags about. Because the outside of the building has never been modified since it's initial construction, Lincoln Hall is a landmark on the University campus and is included with several other campus buildings in the University of Nevada Historic Distric.
We want the University to understand that keeping Lincoln Hall (and it's sister Hall Manzanita) is an important part of maintaining the historic legacy of the University. Several other historic buildings have been seismicly retrofitted over the years to protect them from earthquakes, but none of those classroom or office buildings have impacted more students over the years than Lincoln Hall. Lincoln Hall is also one of only 3 buildings left on campus that was built before 1900.
Sign the petition if you want your voice heard! And if you lived in Lincoln Hall, share a story about why the building is important to you.
