Pictures of the First Floor (basement aka dungeon)
As with the 2nd and 3rd floors, the first
floor is almost completely unrecognizable
compared to our heydays in school.
Starting at the east end or the Main Building side of Hoey Hall, I'm
what used to be the library.
A closer view shows the small door, now painted (used to be stained dark
one of the many entrances to the tunnels on campus. The door on the right
be the electronics room where the few of us took electronic classes which
basically repairing headphones, microphones, and amplifiers for the classes
campus. The stairway to upstairs is on the left.
Turning around, with the door to the tunnel behind me, this is looking down
hall where the library used to be. And yes the door on the left is the new
restroom...lucky them, eh? Beyond the double doors are the two
The double doors mentioned above is to
the right of this picture. Standing
at what once was Mrs. Starrett's classroom, we are looking across the old
hallway and what used to be Mrs. Bigham/Mr. Tullos Science Lab. For
reference purposes, the left side of the column used to be Mrs. Taylor's
classroom and area between the column and the wall was the hallway. The
picture below was taken near the double doors seen on the left.
Mrs. Starrett's classroom was on the left and Mrs. Taylor's
on the right.
Inside the old Science Lab is now a Cooking Lab. Two sets of kitchen related
appliances for trying out new recipes, testing student's expertise in
and even cooking contests....nah, just kidding, I just had to cook up a
humor in the lab...Classroom Kitchens as they're now called.
While they're eating they get to watch TV...I don't think
they get to watch soaps...
unless it's in the sink.
