College of Wooster
It is understood that the old refractor from the original college observatory was moved to Freedlander Park as that observatory’s first telescope circa 1960 when Andrews Library was built on the site of the old observatory. The old observatory building was moved about a half block east and today is known as the Rubbermaid Building. A new, much humbler observatory was completed in January of 2013. A 12-inch Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope installed in the new facility.
This page is under construction; we are seeking additional history of the original observatory and its telescope.
