Inscription. Built in 1929, Bibb Graves Hall opened in September, 1930. It was named for Alabama Governor Bibb Graves (1927-31, 1935-39) who was known as the “education governor.” Bibb Graves Hall served as the original administration building for this campus until the Ralph W. Adams Administration Building was completed in 1989. In 2004, the quad renovation was completed reflecting the intentions of the Olmsted Brothers design as the campus centerpiece. The quad project was accomplished as a result of the generosity of alumni and friends of Troy University.
