Van Meter Auditorium
Van Meter was Davis' first project at Western. When completed in 1911, it was one of the largest buildings between Nashville and Louisville. A student who first saw the campus in 1913 thought Van Meter "the biggest building in the world," a perception accentuated by its position atop a commanding hill. Resembling the Acropolis' Erectheion Temple, Van Meter contained various administrative offices and a 1,600-seat auditorium for campus community events.
Davis lavished the "rotunda" of Van Meter with beautiful fluted pilasters, a stained glass skylight and French marble.
