This building was constructed as the campus’s first student union. The hall was named for local businessman and community leader Louis Lipinsky. A trustee of Asheville-Biltmore College, A UNC Asheville predecessor institution, Lipinksy was instrumental in generating support for the 1958 and 1961 bond referenda which funded the move from Seely’s Caslte to the present site of the campus.
A special thinks to Kevan from Asheville By Foot for my personal tour of UNCA and helping gather information on the campus. Cheers! Troy
