AMES, Iowa — The Agronomy Hall auditorium at Iowa State University has been named in honor of a Webster County couple who farmed near Duncombe for many years.
The W. Kiley and Marie Powers Auditorium is located in the southwest corner of Agronomy Hall on the Iowa State campus. The auditorium, which was built as part of an addition to Agronomy Hall in 1986, is used for classes of 120 students, accommodating courses taught across the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the university.
