1. Cowart Hall Marker
Inscription. Named for Fletcher Thomas Cowart, a Troy University professor of natural science from 1890 to 1919. Cowart Hall was constructed in 1950. Originally a menís dormitory, it was later used to house junior and senior women students. The structure was made necessary because the heavy influx of male students using the G. I. Bill following the end of World War II more than tripled the enrollment of the campus over pre-war totals.
 
Erected by Troy University.
