Note:

Funded by the PWA, this was built as a school building to give WCTC students practical experience and training as teachers. Along with other Stillwell designs on the campus, including Hoey Auditorium and Robertson Hall, it features red brick and classical detailing and has been remodeled. During this same period, noted landscape architect E. S. Draper created a campus plan, which Stillwell followed.
