Inscription.  Sbisa Dining Hall (1913) was designed by campus architect Frederick E. Giesecke to replace the castle-like 1897 mess hall that burned in 1911. It anchors the north end of Military Walk whose south terminus was Guion Assembly Hall (1918-1971). A one-story building with a basement, it is constructed in reinforced concrete and brick masonry, with entries marked with doric porticos and pediments. The facade has brick pilasters alternating with arched wood windows and doors. A hipped roof was added during the renovations and restorations of 1988- 2001. The building is named for Bernard Sbisa, who was "Supervisor of Subsistence Department" for the college from 1879 to 1926.
Erected 2001 by Texas A&M University.
