Household Arts Building (1913)

Description:

Several women near the steps of the Household Arts Building at Texas State College for Women. The three-story brick building has six columns with Ionian capitals. The Household Arts Building was the second largest instructional building erected on the campus of Texas Woman's University. The Legislature appropriated $75,000 for it, and the building was occupied with the opening of the 1913-14 school year. Additions, repairs and changes subsequently may have brought the total cost of the building to approximately $100,000. The building was the home of the Department of Home Economics.
