GALESBURG, Ill. (AP) — Officials at Knox College say fundraising to renovate the school's historic Alumni Hall has exceeded the $8 million mark.
Knox College President Teresa Amott announced the milestone for gifts and pledges Friday during homecoming festivities.
The western Illinois college has restored Alumni Hall's curved front drive and rebuilt four of the five stone stairways outside the 123-year-old building. The hall's slate roof was restored in the 1990s and the exterior brickwork and windows in the mid-2000s.
The fundraising drive has a goal of $11 million. Interior renovations are ahead for the 10,000-square-foot building. It will ultimately house several Knox College programs and resources for prospective students and alumni.
