Dedicated in 1900, the Edwards Room inside of Keil Hall was Dr. Irvine's first foray into bringing Gothic architecture to Mercersburg Academy, starting a decades-long movement of "inspiring by design" through the buildings of the campus. It has served at various times in Mercersburg's history as a dining hall, library, performance space, and student lounge. Hear from School Archivist Doug Smith P '23 '24 as he shares architectural details and stories about this iconic space.
