    Berry College Chapel

    by cruisingbug Written Jan 23, 2004
    Berry College Chapel, Georgia

    The main chapel at Berry College is the site of weekly services, as well as commencement addresses, guest speaker addresses and Mountain Day services. Both Howard K. Smith and Jean-Michel Cousteau spoke here in my days as a student. On the morning of Mountain Day, students dressed in the traditional pink for girls and blue for boys line up to file into the chapel.

    Normandy Buildings - Mountain Campus

    by cruisingbug Written Jan 23, 2004
    Normandy Buildings, Berry College, GA

    The Normandy Dairy Barns are an integral part of Berry's agricultural education history. Many Berry students worked (and lived) at the dairy barns, as well as just visited to see the baby calves. According to Berry's email newsletter, the new WinShape Retreat Centre, which opened in September 2003, is housed in the renovated Normandy Buildings. The new retreat center will serve as both a marriage seminar and ministry center and home to the WinShape girls camp.
    The former calving barn has been transformed into the Grand Chalet, which houses the retreat center's administrative offices. The Normandy Buildings were emptied when the dairy was streamlined and relocated to the Main Campus.

    Mothers/Trustees/Evans/Next?

    by cruisingbug Written Jan 23, 2004
    Evans Hall, Berry College, GA

    This is a view of Evans Hall, once called Trustees Hall. It has been renovated since this photo was taken, though. This was my "home" as an English major during my years at Berry. I also worked in this building, running movies in the auditorium on Saturday nights. The building once served as a dorm, I believe, and was also once called "Mothers Hall." Unlike the Gothic Ford Buildings, the southern end of the main campus is heavily brick "Georgia" style.

    "Chastity Castle"

    by cruisingbug Written Jan 23, 2004
    Ford Buildings, Berry College, GA

    The Ford Buildings, so named because their construction was financed by Henry Ford, are the architectural heart of the Berry College campus. The Gothic structures are used for both housing (pictured are the East and West Mary dorms) and classroom space, as well as the new alumni center. Walking through the Ford Buildings area transports one to England's Oxford, which served as a model for the buildings. I've always thought they'd be a nice backdrop for a Renaissance Festival....

    Barnwell Chapel

    Barnwell Chapel, Berry College, GA

    Barnwell Chapel is in the center of the log buildings below the Ford Buildings on the main campus. The chapel is used for special services (such as a monthly Catholic mass) as well as weddings. Here you see my friend Jenny in a pouf of white after her ceremony here.

    Martha's Home

    by amybrooke Written Apr 9, 2006

    You'll have to go across the street to see this. It's where she lived and it's so beautiful. Just turn right out of the college and go up one light. It's up on the left.

    Go for hike on this trail. The RR track, which run beside it, once ran all the way from Boston to Atlanta. Really peaceful. Have a picnic.

    There are a couple around. The larger one can be reserved for weddings if you or your family is an alumni.
