Columbia College has three buildings on the Notable Properties list.
They are Williams Hall, St. Clair Hall and Launer Auditorium.
Williams Hall was originally started in 1848 as home for Dr. James H. Bennett, a leading Columbia physician, according to information provided by Columbia College as a part of the nomination process. “Williams Hall is the oldest college building in continuous use for educational purposes west of the Mississippi River,” according to the Columbia College Web site. Once used as a music building, today the building houses administration and faculty offices and classrooms.
