Austin Hall (former; TWU) – Denton TX

Description

Texas Woman University’s original Austin Hall was constructed with federal Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) funds. “Named after Texas hero Stephen F. Austin, the hall was constructed in 1936-37 on the site of the original “dorm row.”” The building is since demolished; a building in the newer Lowry Woods Apartments complex on campus has also been given the name Austin Hall.
