Backstory and Context
Morgan Hall once stood where Annie-Hogan stands today.
Morgan Hall was constructed as a private residence for the Lawrence family in the late 1880s, approximately the same time McCormick Hall was constructed. The
twelve-room Queen-Anne style building was later purchased by Tusculum to serve as a dormitory for twenty five of the college's female students. Later, Morgan Hall was home to the music department before being demolished to make way for Annie Hogan Byrd Fine Arts Center in the early 1960s.
This section of campus was also home to the Old Student Union, often referred to as the "SUB" by students. The SUB was a wooden frame structure erected after World War II and was located across the street from Virginia Hall and the campus Post Office. The SUB was a popular destination for students and contained a soda fountain, lunch counter, booths, and served student favorites including burgers, fries, soda, and ice cream. The SUB was moved after Annie Hogan Byrd and Katherine Hall were built.
