Tuscaloosa in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Woods Hall, 1868
Constructed after the Civil War, this gothic revival structure was built of materials salvaged from the original campus, burned by Federal Troops in April 1865. For almost two decades, Woods Hall housed the entire university.
In keeping with the University's Military Governance (1860-1903), "The Barracks" -- as the hall was first designated--was patterned after buildings on the campus of The Virginia Military Institute.
Erected by University of Alabama.
