A Brief History of Sanders Hall
Year of Construction: 1865
Original Owner: Bennett Turk
Year Purchased by Champlain College: 1967
Sanders Hall was built in 1865 for the Turk family, who operated a department store on College Street in Burlington for many years. The family lived in the house until 1921, when for a short time it was used as a fraternity house. It was then sold to the University of Vermont and used as a dormitory. The house was named Sanders Hall after Daniel Sanders, who was the first president of the University of Vermont. When the building was purchased by Champlain College in 1967, Bader Brouilette decided to leave the name of the building unchanged.
