OSU Buildings Histories in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center

Brief History

This building was constructed in 1912 and originally known as the Farm Mechanics Building. In 1938, it was heavily damaged by fire in 1938; it was reconstructed and expanded in 1939, and renamed the Agricultural Engineering Building. Portland architect John Bennes designed both the original building, and the 1939 expansion. In 1965, the Agricultural Engineering Building was renamed Gilmore Hall, in honor of William J. Gilmore, the head of the Farm Mechanics / Agricultural Engineering Department from 1915 to 1945.
