Milam Hall


2520 SW Campus Way, Corvallis, Oregon

This is one of architect John Bennes’ earliest designs for OSU's campus. Its core portion was constructed in 1913 for the School of Domestic Science, which later became known the School of Home Economics, and significant additions to the building were added in 1920 and 1952. The Home Economics Building was rededicated as Milam Hall in 1976 to honor the contributions of Ava B. Milam, who was a leading feminist of the era and Dean of the School of Home Economics from 1917 to 1950.
