Named for Abraham Baldwin, the founder of UGA. In late 2015 and early 2016, construction workers discovered unmarked graves of deceased African American slaves. Baldwin Hall was first constructed on top of the African American part of an old cemetery on Jackson Street in the 1930s. There is a bronze statue on North campus of him. A memorial was unveiled on November 16, 2018, in front of Baldwin Hall to honor the dead.
