After 10 decades of continuous use, Gilman Hall, the Johns Hopkins University’s flagship building and the heart of the Homewood campus, has undergone a bold, ambitious renovation that enhanced and revitalized the historic structure while dramatically transforming it into a model for modern scholarship in the humanities.
This Diary website chronicled the three-year renovation, with new content added each month, providing a look at the construction itself and the myriad stories surrounding the project and this 95-year-old building. In the fall of 2010, we celebrated the much-anticipated grand re-opening of Gilman Hall.
See more about the reopening at our 95 Scenes of Gilman Hall site.
