West Village residence halls named for famous Marylanders
Signer of Declaration, abolitionist honored
Nearly 700 TU freshmen and sophomores will call Paca House and Tubman House home.
Two West Village residence halls will bear the names of famous Marylanders when they open later this summer.
The new facilities are William Paca House (next to Millennium Hall) and
Harriet Tubman House (next to Towson Run Apartments).
William Paca (1740-1799) signed the Declaration of Independence and later served as Maryland governor and chief justice.
Harriet Tubman (1819?-1913) was a former slave who became an abolitionist and humanitarian. She led hundreds of slaves to freedom along the Underground Railroad.
The West Village area is located west of Osler Drive. It also includes Towson Run Apartments and Millennium Hall.
Paca and Tubman houses will open in August and will together house 668 freshmen and sophomores. Both willl be managed by Capstone Management and Housing and Residence Life.
