My daughter just graduted from OSU and, on her way out of town, drove up Washington and noticed that the president's residence had been torn down! Anybody know what's up? Are they building a new one? Seems that this is being done on the down-low, interestingly.

Wow, Hargis took over they made plans for a new for two reasons. One was they wanted a place in walking distance to campus to host fundraisers and events; the other was the Brady bunch style architecture the old one was built with. I thought, but I am not sure, the plan was for the new one to be where Farmhouse was and they were getting a new house, but that was close to ten years ago or more.

FarmHouse did get a new house a few years ago, but the new power plant now sits on that lot. Not sure that there is any other suitable lot close to campus now. Wonder where Burns is living now that the house is gone?

New house will be built in the same location as the old. The old one had a lot of issues with infrastructure, was not ADA compliant and generally didn't serve the needs of a University president. The Hargis' are living in another house not far away for the time being.

Maybe he's living at the Atherton?
