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.
