Events Throughout the Years
War Memorial Tablet Unveiling
On November 24th 1948, Knox College would unveil a War Memorial Tablet in its Chapel to commemorate all of the people who served in the WWII and to remember the Presbyterian ministers who fought in the war.
Remembering the Past
The building’s beautiful architecture has not gone unnoticed outside of the Presbyterian Church community. It has been used by several residents who were not members of the theological colleges and they all have come to appreciate the building. The Caven Library is easily among the best places on the campus to study. In addition to the Library, the College’s Cloister is one of the quieter and scenic places to get some work done in a peaceful setting.
