The United States Navy erected this building as part of its World War I Naval Training Center located on the University of Washington (UW) Campus in 1917. UW administrators received the building from the Navy at the conclusion of the war and renamed it in honor of the Euro-American Seattle pioneer, Charles C. Terry, who, along with Arthur A. Denny and Edward Lander donated land to create the first campus for the institution in Downtown Seattle.

Building History

The United States Navy erected this wood-frame building on the University of Washington Campus at the beginning of America's involvement in World War I. It was meant to serve sailors being trained for war-time duty.

After World War I, this building was used as the Men's Dormitory.


This first UW building named for Charles C. Terry (1830-1867), a member of the Denny Party that arriced in Seattle in 1851, was razed in 1928.
