History

Grosvenor Hall was the first building of the West Green project, and was therefore originally known as West Green building number 1. It opened in 1962 and was used for a dormitory. In 1977 it was renovated and became the home of the then-new College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Charles H. Grosvenor

Grosvenor (pronounced "Grovener" — the "s" is silent) Hall was named in honor of Charles H. Grosvenor, who grew up in Athens, Ohio. He was an attorney, a general in the Union Army during the Civil War, and a U.S. representative for 20 years. He was responsible for persuading Andrew Carnegie to provide funds for a library at Ohio University.
