Central Washington University (CWU) was established in 1890 for the sole purpose of preparing teachers. The first classes began in 1891 in an elementary school, which were moved four years later to the only building on campus, Barge Hall. Still at the center of campus life, Barge Hall currently serves as the central administration building. It honors the historic roots of the institution by continuing to carry the title Washington State Normal School above its main entrance.
