Fletcher Hall Major Renovations
Fletcher Residence, in ECU’s West End Neighborhood, has undergone significant renovations to the student centric space located in the bottom level of the hall. The building opened in 1963 and was named after Inglis Fletcher, a writer of historical novels who resided in Edenton, NC. She was at the dedication of the building, which drew such a crowd due to her notoriety that ceremony was held in the football stadium. When it first opened, Fletcher Hall was the tallest building in Greenville and was often referred to as the “skyscraper dorm” by locals. It was originally built to be a women’s residence hall but has been co-ed for many years. (See Before and After Photos)
