Otterbein University was founded in 1847 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. As a result of a division and two mergers involving the Church, the university has since 1968 been associated with the United Methodist Church. The University is named for United Brethren founder the Rev. Philip William Otterbein.
The Otterbein campus is located in Westerville, Ohio. It sits between Alum Creek on the west and State Street (Ohio State Route 3) on the east. West Home Street, which runs through the center of campus, is the address of most of the college's homes and student residence halls (such as 25 [Suite Style Residence], Mayne Hall, Hanby Hall, and Clements Hall), as well as the Campus Center. The north end of the campus is home to most underclassman housing, the health and physical education department, athletic facilities, as well as the Clements Recreation Center. Overall, the Campus occupies 140 acres (0.57 km2).
Towers Hall is the oldest building on campus and is designated as a national landmark. Towers Hall is a 55,619 square foot structure that was opened in 1871 and renovated in 1998. A gallery of portraits of former Otterbein presidents is located on the second floor. Towers Hall houses the Departments of English, History and Political Science, Religion and Philosophy, Foreign Language, Sociology, and Mathematical Sciences. Towers Hall is a general classroom and faculty office building. Otterbein was founded in 1847 with two buildings that served as classrooms and housing for male students. When the main campus building was destroyed by a suspicious fire on Jan. 26, 1870, Otterbein and the Westerville community raised the $29,335 necessary to build what is now Towers Hall in 1871. Some bricks from the burned building were used in the construction to save money on building costs. Towers Hall was officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 4, 1971. The building received a well-deserved makeover in the late 1990s and was rededicated on April 26, 1999.
