Considered the first permanent and the second buildings built on campus, the Normal Building was constructed in 1891, and was struck by lightning and destroyed in 1907. The Frame Building was constructed in 1901 to provide extra space for an auditorium and classes, and was torn down about 1904 to make way for what would become known as the Old Main Building. The buildings were located facing Hickory Street, east of Avenue B.
