    Welcome to Marthapædia!
    ...
    this project is beingwas continued by
    The goal of this assignment is to encourage students to apply the writing process from invention through drafting and collaborative revision in a medium used more and more often to share knowledge. Students are charged with the creation and maintenance of Marthapædia as a resource exploring the significance of Berry College's rich history and institutional culture. In order to do this, they will collaboratively write, revise, and edit articles about the history, events, people, places, and organizations of Berry College based in research conducted with primary and secondary sources.
    Dr. Dominy's students can get more information about the assignment's guidelines at the Assignment Prompt page. Each page has a discussion tab students can use to collaborate on revision or expansion strategies pertaining to that article. Students can collaborate with other students on design, appearance, and organization issues related to Marthapædia through these discussion pages. Students should also know and abide by the 10 Commandments of Marthapaedia.

    Names
    Throughout the past years the Hoge Building has had several uses. With these new uses a new name was often given. When the Hoge Building was first built it was named the Recitation Hall. This was its name for a while. However, "when the new brick Recitation Hall (now Green Hall) was opened in 1922, the present Hoge Building became the administration building." (Berry ) "Upon the recommendation of Berry President John Bertrand in March 1960, the board of trustees voted to name the building for E.H. Hoge, the schools first comptroller." (Berry )

    Miss Berry laid out a road on one of the best looking fields and bordered it with elms, explaining that one day there would be a beautiful building there. Her friends, one being Judge Wright, protested this. It is the second oldest building on the main campus and the oldest facility still in active use (Berry). This building has had many uses and names over the past years, and It possibly has more to come.
    History
    ...
    that year ().(The Berry Schools Bulletin). And so
    The building was originally built with five classrooms and a principal's office on the first floor, an auditorium and a library on the second floor. After the construction of the new Recitation Hall it became the administration building. It had several offices along with Martha Berry in one of them. It also housed the post office. It was like this until tragedy struck. The building was ravaged by fire one night. Luckily the fire department got there in time to stop it. It only reached the second floor and the attic. The location of the post office was moved for a while until reconstruction was done. Through insurance they got enough money to cover the damages and to upgrade the building. They saw this as an opportunity to remodel and did so.
    About every department has been in this building at one time. The last use for it was for a handicrafts center. A student used to be able to go there and weave or do other crafts for free. They shut that down a few years back though. They got the idea from the wife of E.H Hoge that gave her service to Berry College for without payment for all of her life. She used to sit around and sew. She would teach the students to sew if they asked her to. It was because of her and her husbands service that they got a building named for them.

    History
    The Hoge Building was built in 1905.A group of 800 students here at Berry gave a dollar a piece to help pay for it. Mr. and Ms. Ford gave money for its construction as well. When first built it was called the Recitation Hall. It was originally meant to replace the White Wash School House. The school had burned down earlier that year (). And so the story of the Hoge Building was beginning.
