U of M Moment: Historian recalls Wesbrook Hall

June 30, 2011

One of the university’s oldest buildings, Wesbrook Hall on the East Bank of the U’s Twin Cities campus, is set to be torn down later this summer. U of M historian Ann Pflaum recounts the past usage of Wesbrook, which will make way for green space outside Northrop Auditorium.

Pflaum says there are many legends surrounding the 19th-century structure – some more true than others.
