Wall collapses at University of North Alabama Monday afternoon
FLORENCE, Ala. – A truly bizarre incident unfolded Monday afternoon on the University of North Alabama campus.
Wesleyan Hall is one of the oldest buildings at the university – dating back before the Civil War.
Just after 2:00 p.m., a sizable portion of the third floor exterior wall gave way on the south side of the building.
Architects believe moisture had gotten behind the brick veneer and froze overnight – causing it to separate from the building.
The university said they expect the building to reopen Tuesday morning.
