Mahan Hall celebrates 100th birthday


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – Thursday, students at University of the Cumberlands celebrated the 100th birthday of Mahan Hall with free food and drinks. The men’s dormitory was built in 1906, when the university was known as Williamsburg Institute. The building was originally Felix Hall, named after Board of Trustees member Dr. W. H. Felix of Lexington. Its name was changed to Mahan Hall in 1954 to honor the service of E. C. Mahan to the school. It was renovated in 1984.
