Building History

Google Maps

This building is currently under reconstruction. Named in honor of Forestry's first Dean and the seventh President of the University, Peavy Hall, along with the adjoining Richardson Hall, is home to the College of Forestry and the Oregon Forest Research Laboratory. These are recognized as one of North America's most highly regarded teaching, research and outreach programs. Not to be confused with the Peavy Hall, a wing of Central Hall (demolished) in the 1940s.
