Significance: The Richard H. Allen Memorial Hall is the main building in the campus design of the Sheldon Jackson College. The building is one of six original campus structures designed by the New York firm of Ludlow and Peabody and constructed in 1910-11. The Hall served as both gymnasium and classroom, reflecting the religious, cultural, and social interests of both the school and the City of Sitka. The Hall stands as the central building in a quadrangle site plan that composes the only formal campus design in Alaska.
