Biography/HistoryDakota Hall had its beginnings at the request of the Federal Government and with the consent of the North Dakota State Council of Defense, the Board of Regents approved the erection of an emergency building for the use of soldiers in training under government direction. It was constructed in 9 weeks in 1918. It was a frame building covering approximately one-half acres of ground, and with a total floor area of 31, 538 square feet. It consisted of sleeping quarters, mess hall, kitchen, offices and toilet. The sleeping quarters were two stories in height; the other portions were one story. It was provided with steam heat, electric lights, showers, etc. and would accommodate 400 men. The construction work was done largely by the soldiers training in the carpentry group (Beacon Across the Prairie, p.94 and College and State, January-February, 1919, p. 8).
