Chalmers Hall History:
Originally part of the Methodist Church property purchased by the College in 1950, this was a Sunday school building named by the church for James Chalmers who was not only a strong Methodist leader, but also treasurer of the Roanoke College Board of Trustees from 1882 to 1899. The main level was extensively renovated in the summer of 1998 and the ground level in the summer of 2001 to provide additional living spaces for upper-class residents.
