St. Gregory’s finishes repairs two years after record quake hit Shawnee
SHAWNEE, Okla. – Two years after that huge earthquake hit out state, St. Gregory’s University in Shawnee is finally finished with the repairs.
The turrets on Benedictine Hall crumbled after the quake hit in 2011.
Donations from more than 3,000 friends and alumni of the university.
The turrets on the near-century old building have been reconstructed from steel and other sustainable materials keeping the original Gothic architecture.
Completing the turrets is phase one of a multi-part plan to restore and update the building.
