Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-41).
Significance: McCormick Hall was built 1884-1887. It was partly financed by a large gift from the estate of Cyrus McCormick, and was the first of many benefactions from his widow Nettie Fowler McCormick and the McCormick family to Tusculum College. The building was designed by A. Page Brown in collaboration with the Minneapolis architect Warren H. Hayes. Brown was a protégé of Mrs. McCormick at this time, and later had a brilliant but brief career in New York and California. The building is simple in design, but very advanced for this region. The original auditorium was converted to offices in 1965.
