Terrell Hall
The University of Georgia

Amidst the majestic magnolia and oak trees that grace the University of Georgia's North Campus sits Terrell Hall, a building facing the University's historic Chapel. The site was originally intended for a Science Hall, the construction of which was completed in 1897. However, a fire destroyed this edifice only six years later, leaving behind a foundation on which the construction of Terrell Hall occurred in 1904. The cornerstone of the original building can still be seen. Designed in the Renaissance Revival style by Professor Charles Strahan, Terrell Hall was named in honor of William Terrell, an antebellum planter who went on to become a Georgia representative for the United States Congress and also endowed the Professorship of Agricultural Chemistry. For many years the pharmacy department and University Press were housed in the building. It is now the home of the Office of Admissions and is therefore visited by thousands of prospective students each year.
