Built in 1829, the Gorgas House is the oldest structure on the University of Alabama campus. Originally constructed to serve as a hotel, housing for the university steward, and student dining hall, the building underwent several renovations to meet the needs of an ever-changing and growing campus. Later utilized as a faculty residence, classroom, post office, and infirmary, the Gorgas House was one of the few buildings to survive the destruction of campus near the end of the Civil War. Standing as a lasting reminder of the university's antebellum past, the house is preserved today as a museum dedicated to the legacy of the building's final residents, the Gorgas family.
