City Directories and History: Erskine College Quadrangle, (1859): Two-story, stuccoed building in the Italian Renaissance Revival Style. Thomas Veal, of Columbia, S.C., was the architect for the building. Facade features a central pedimented pavilion with paired Corinthian pilasters at either side of a Palladian window. Single doorways, with round-headed windows above, are at either side of the central pavilion; colossal Corinthian pilasters are located at the corners of the building. Recessed balustrades are used for decoration. The second story of the hall features a large meeting room with elaborate painting around the cornice and across the
ceiling, which was done in 1912 by the Italian painter Angelo Lanzer. (SCDAH)
