George Washington University, Stockton Hall

Like Corcoran Hall, Stockton Hall was part of Albert Harris' early plans for the George Washington University quadrangle.

Stockton Hall is the sister building to Corcoran Hall, and is one of two buildings constructed after a 1922 plan by architect Albert Harris for a Georgian Revival quadrangle to house George Washington University.

Stockton Hall is representative of the early-twentieth century notions of formalism and order. The Harris Plan for the university, which called for the construction of Stockton Hall, is typical of the campus designs formulated by colleges and universities across the country in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The careful spatial arrangement of buildings on this cross-axial plan was to provide a clarity of purpose and harmony to the campus setting.
