Ozark Hall at the University of Arkansas is a building on the University's campus in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[2]

History

Ozark Hall was built in 1935 as "Classroom Building" with two other structures: the Home Economics Building and the old Student Union. Using Indiana Limestone, the building was finished in 1940 by the Manhattan Construction Company of Muskogee, OK. It initially held faculty only. The Commerce Building was finished in 1947, and the two buildings were connected. It was at this time that the structure was named the Business Administration Building. Five other departments were also housed in this building until the namesake moved out in 1978 to a new Business Building on Ozark Avenue. It was then renamed Ozark Hall, which it remains named today. In 1987, the Commerce Building-portion was razed. The building then came to house the Graduate School, the department of geosciences, and the nursing program.

Renovation project

Ozark Hall is now undergoing a major two-year renovation, restoration, and expansion project, scheduled for completion for the fall of 2013, including the addition of a new wing that will house the Honors College.
