When 1816 rolled around, Ohio University was 12 years old, and no substantial building graced College Green where cattle still grazed. It was time to build. The cornerstone for Cutler Hall, OHIO’s oldest building, was laid in 1816. Throughout the iconic building’s history, it has served OHIO’s alumni in myriad ways: as classroom building, laboratory, library, and museum. As the oldest building erected for higher education west of the Alleghenies and north of the Ohio River, Cutler Hall has been the subject of many photos.That number increased in fall 2016, when OHIO hosted a celebration marking the national historic landmark’s bicentennial and invited a descendant of Manasseh Cutler, a founder, to speak. The OHIO community was encouraged to post their own photo of the building to the Ohio University Alumni Association’s Instagram account with #Cutler200.
