The Wall Comes Down


To make way for the new plaza that will connect campus to downtown Elon, crews started removing a section of brick wall on April 4. It was a deliberate process as only a 50-foot section was to be removed. The above image was taken Monday afternoon, while standing on Williamson Avenue looking south.

On April 5, just over 24 hours later, the section of wall was largely cleared out – see photos below. In addition to removing a portion of sidewalk, a street lamp was also taken down.

The bricks from the wall – which dates back to 1925 – are expected to be repurposed in the new plaza.
