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.
