Completed in 1939, the Georgian Revival style building was part of the school's Public Works Administration-sponsored campus building campaign. A slightly modified version of Annie Day Shepard Hall, it lacks a gable above the entrance pavillion and the balustrade on the frame Tuscan portico. Unlike Shepard Hall, however, the fanlight at the main entrance is leaded.
