Built in 1947, the industrial building housed the Forest Products Lab, which later morphed into the Forest Research Lab. At one point it was used for engineering research – especially large scale problems in industrial engineering. In 1992, a fire destroyed the south part of the building. It was replaced in 1996 and the building’s name changed to Cascade Hall. This building now houses the Department of Public Safety and Oregon State Police. Renovations made in in 2015 accommodate INTO OSU classrooms.MC 27.17
