Old George Still Home

Some of you may have seen an article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch about the possibility of “Old George” (or a copy thereof) taking to the road.

Rest assured that the original “Old George,”repaired and restored, continues to reside in the Boatwright Room within Leyburn Library’s Special Collections area.  Even today, 170 years after his original ascent in 1844 above the building now known as Washington Hall, students and other researchers continue to work under his serious gaze.

Drop by and say “hi.”
