Urbana University Bailey and Barclay Halls

Bailey and Barclay Halls at Urbana University are on the National Historic Registry and have an Ohio Historical Marker. The namesakes of the two historic buildings connect the University directly back to the American Revolution. This project was a combination addition and renovation/restoration of these important original buildings.

The university desired to bring both buildings back to original condition, while adapting them to the needs of the 21st Century University classrooms and offices. Additionally, Barclay Hall housed the Johnny Appleseed Museum, a tribute to John Chapman, a key leader in the founding of Urbana University. Both structures were also built in the Italianate style, and were designed by William Russell West, architect of the Ohio Statehouse.

Kapp Construction was presented with the Excellence in Construction Award for this project by the Associated Builders and Contractors, Ohio Valley Chapter, their highest recognition for a restorative project.
