Biography/HistoryThe first permanent building on the North Dakota Agricultural College (NDAC) campus was College Hall, also called the Administration Building, but more commonly known as Old Main. In February 1891, the North Dakota State Legislature appropriated $25, 000 to erect the structure. Construction of the lower levels was completed by the end of 1891 and on January 3, 1892, the institution opened its regular work in its permanent home. An additional $3, 000 was appropriated in the next legislative session to complete the building and by the summer of 1893, it was considered completed.
