In 1875 the Ohio State University shooting facilities were at what is now the Ohio State Fair Grounds. Since that time the shooting range has been in several locations on campus. In 1966 the present range in Converse Hall was dedicated by President Novice G. Fawcett in honor of Lt. Hugh W. Wylie.

Lt. Wylie, of Circleville, Ohio, was a graduate of OSU and was a member of the Army ROTC. He served with the 82nd Airborne Division in North Africa, Italy and Holland. On Sept. 17, 1944, Lt. Wylie was killed near Arnheim, Holland in Operation Market-Garden, the battle that inspired the book and movie, A Bridge Too Far.

The Lt. Hugh W. Wylie Range is a 20 point range set for 50 foot and 10 meter shooting with respective 22 caliber ammunition and precision air guns. An elevator was placed in service early in 2000 to serve handicapped students and competitive shooters.
