Constructed in 1889 at a cost of $35,000, this Romanesque Revival-style building served as the University's first library. Renamed in honor of James Alexander Ventress in 1985, this building has also served as the School of Law (1911-1929), State Geological Survey and Department of Geology (1929-1963), a classroom facility and the Department of Art (1963-1970s). Following renovations in 1993, Ventress Hall became the home of the College of Liberal Arts' administrative offices in 1998.
