Decoding the Myths of Asa Packer, 1805?-1879

Packer Hall

Construction of Packer Hall, now known as the University Center, began in 1865, making it the first building created for Lehigh.  Unlike other parts of campus, it reflects Packer's own influence as it was his decision to build it out of stone rather than brick.  While Packer refused to name his school after himself, he did allow this building to bear his name.
