1. Sussex Hall Marker
Inscription.  This residence hall is named after Delaware's southernmost county and is one of the oldest buildings on the south Green. Sussex Hall was completed in 1917 and was built with an appropriation from the Delaware General Assembly. It was the second dormitory for students attending the Women's College of Delaware, which opened in 1914.

Major renovations altered and enhanced the hall's interior in 1998, though the classic Georgian exterior was preserved.
