Robertson-Sayre, Corwin, and Larimore Halls (Wesley College)
Acquired by UND in 1965, Wesley College began in Wahpeton in 1891 as a Methodist institution, known as Red River Valley University. Comprised of three main halls (Robertson-Sayre, Corwin, and Larimore), all designed by McCrea, the buildings form a quadrangle across University Avenue to the north and to the original UND campus layout. Their Beaux-Arts classical design contrasts with the Collegiate Gothic to the south of University Avenue. Wesley affiliated with UND at the encouragement of UND’s influential president Webster Merrifield.
