IngramMusic Hall 2012-presentConstruction 2010-2012HistoryThe three story building originally measured approximately 82 feet x 120 feet with 50,000 square feet of usable space. Construction was paid for through Works Progress Administration funding. WKU Industrial Arts students constructed the window frames. Auditoriums were located on the first and second floors and seated 200 people. The building was located south of the Physical Education Building. The 1st floor was used for band, orchestra, and other instrumental activities. The 2nd floor was used for vocal activities and the 3rd floor was used for theory classes. The building was razed in 1975 because "it is uneconomical to bring it to up-to-date standards." [Shirley, Janet.
