Slocum Hall is a building on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. It is a residential building that houses students, and it may also contain classrooms, offices, and other facilities. Ohio Wesleyan University is a private liberal arts and sciences university located in Delaware, Ohio, United States. It was founded in 1842 by Methodist leaders and Central Ohio residents as a nonsectarian institution, and it is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the state of Ohio. The university offers undergraduate and graduate programs in a wide range of fields, including the arts, sciences, business, education, and social sciences. It is known for its strong commitment to liberal arts education and for the diverse and engaged community of students, faculty, and staff who make up its campus.

Slocum Hall was constructed between 1895 and 1898 in honor of Charles Elihu Slocum, M.D.

On this project, The Durable Slate Company installed new custom fabricated 20 oz copper box gutters with new expansion joints where necessary along with new custom 20oz copper downspouts to match the existing. To begin, we removed the existing hip tiles and two tiles over, installed new ice and water shield to the hip and reinstalled the tiles, re-setting the tile hips in new flexim roof mortar, re-flashed the south upper roof pan, connecting south center chimney and valley in new custom fabricated copper.

Lastly, we removed and replaced the front entry copper standing seam roof with a new copper standing seam roof with transverse seams to match the existing appearance. This work also included installing new box gutter liners at the eaves and new custom copper downspouts.
