McConaughy Hall, a glass-enclosed, circular, two-story pavilion on Wesleyan's campus, was demolished this summer and replaced with a grassy slope. The movie below consists of a series of still images I took during the demolition (higher resolution video). The soundtrack is "The Great Unknown", written and sung by Dar Williams (and used with her permission). Williams is a Wesleyan alum who undoubtedly ate many meals in MoCon.
The University decided to demolish MoCon because it could not find any suitable use for a building which was expensive to maintain. President Roth wrote in his blog posting about his decision , "The building just didn't accommodate the needs we had, or, if we tried to make the structure fit those needs, it became just too expensive."
The University has posted McConaughy Hall: Generations of Memories, which includes many photos, as well as a listing of some of the noteworthy events held in MoCon over the years.
