Morrow Hall

Morrow Hall is a historic building in Batesville, Arkansas at Seventh and College Streets. It was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

Built in 1873, this was the first permanent building of Arkansas College (now Lyon College), the oldest continuing private college in the state of Arkansas. Three other academic buildings once stood on the block - the Long Memorial Building, on the site of the Presbyterian sanctuary; the chapel, which stood between Long and Morrow; and the gymnasium, which has been remodeled to serve as the present church Fellowship Hall, immediately behind Morrow.

Morrow Hall stands as it was originally built. It is an "academic house," with Italianate pressed tin window trim and projecting central bay. It is now used used as Sunday School classrooms by the First Presbyterian Church.
