Witwer Hall, the final building to be constructed on Dickinson College’s Benjamin Rush campus, was dedicated on October 14, 1967.  The hall, which was first used as a residence hall for women, was designed by Elmer H. Adams.  The name of the building recognizes the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harold R. Witwer and Mr. and Mrs. Samuel W. Witwer, and of the endowed support of the Witwer Family Memorial Fund.
