The Shack Greenbelt Community Furman University

The Shack is the residence for the Greenbelt Community's resident advisor and houses one other resident. Built in 1937, the Shack is significant in Furman’s history as the only remaining structure from the former Greenville Woman’s College. The "rustic mountain cabin" served as a snack bar and rustic gathering place at Greenville Woman's College until it was moved to Furman’s current location in 1962. The residence's interior was refurbished in 2008.
