- Thomas Jefferson statue on far right of photo. Mason hall, first University building devoted to instruction was known as the University Building upon completion in 1841 in time for fall classes. It was both dormitory and classroom facility. It was named after Govenor Stevens T. Mason in 1843. In 1856 the central part of the North Wing was renovated to house the University Library and Museum. A similar building was erected to the South. University Hall (built 1871-1873) connected the two buildings, which then were referred to as South Wing and North Wing. Mason Hall, South Wing and University Hall were removed in 1950.
