Description
Originally known as the Academical Building, Cabell Hall is one of three buildings designed for the south end of the Lawn in 1898 by Stanford White. The Academical Building was renamed for Joseph C. Cabell, a member of the Board of Visitors, and houses the University's Department of Music and the Music Library. Cabell Hall directly faces the Rotunda and it connected with Rouss and Cocke Hall on either side by means of pergolas. Old Cabell Hall had upper and lower level lecture rooms at either end of the building with a large auditorium in between. The Auditorium seats 1500 and contains a copy of Raphael’s “The School of Athens,” painted by George Breck in 1900, and a Skinner Organ, a gift of Andrew Carnegie in 1906. The lobby features a mural, “The Student’s Progress,” by Lincoln Perry, completed in 2012.
