College Station in Brazos County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
K. K. Legett Hall Centennial
Architect Frederick Giesecke designed Legett and Milner Halls, before going on to design Sbisa Hall, the Academic and Chemistry buildings, Hart and Walton residence halls, and Cushing Memorial Library. J.S. Harrison was the contractor for Legett. Built to house 100 students just 35 years after Texas A&M opened, the 50 room residence hall was modern for the time. The exterior boasts little ornamentation beyond the columns on its entranceway and stone-cast balconies at various windows. The hall was renovated in 1942 to match newly constructed residence halls. Minor renovations also occurred in 1966 and 1970.
K.K. Legett hall holds much architectural and historical significance to Texas A&M University as the oldest residence hall in continuous service.
Erected by Texas A&M University.
