UNCA Architecture Tour | Ramsey Library

Built in 1965 | Designed by Tony LordScreen Shot 2015-02-24 at 9.17.29 AM

D. Hiden Ramsey was the first chairman of the statewide Board of Higher Education. He was, also, the Editor of The Asheville Citizen. Ramsey library was constructed in 1965 and was the first building on campus to be named for someone. The original construction, designed by architect Tony Lord, was made with precast concrete panels. The building’s lower level was renovated in 1990 more than doubling the library size. The library’s cafe was added at that time as well.
