The Barn and Observatory

The Barn

This multi-functional building, attached to the Observatory, was designed by Martin & Company Architects of Radford Virginia and completed in 2000. It functions as a Conference/Event Center and an educational building. The exterior of the facility replicates a vintage agricultural appearance, in keeping with the rest of the buildings on the Selu property.

For more information contact Jeff Armistead, Director.

The Selu Observatory is used by Radford University for Astronomy classes. The Observatory, along with the barn, were designed by Martin & Company Architects of Radford Virginia and completed in 2000. Selu Observatory is free and open to the public every clear Friday night. Sessions usually last about two hours, but may run longer or shorter depending on interest and sky conditions. Many interesting objects can be seen throughout the year.
