 In 1997 the University of Delaware converted a number of brick homes on Delaware Avenue
into office space by connecting them in  in the back to a central building which housed lecture rooms
for the departments of history and anthropology. On November 2 of that year,  this new building was
dedicated and became "Munroe Hall." Click on the image below to visit a page about the dedication.
