Built in 1867, the Residence on Francis Quadrangle is MU’s oldest building. It’s also home to MU Chancellor Brady J. Deaton and Mrs. Anne Deaton, who will open their doors for a holiday celebration from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5.
Faculty, staff and students are invited to tour the historic residence at 501 S. Ninth St. and enjoy carolers from the MU School of Music. A quartet from Missouri Youth Orchestra, housed at Mizzou and directed by Carrie Turner, will perform inside. In addition, Department of Theater students will portray historic characters who have visited the Residence or been involved at MU over the past century. Refreshments will be served.
The third annual Holiday Open House is hosted by the Deatons and by Provost Brian Foster and Mrs. Lerke Foster.
