The Early Years

Maggi Smith Hall was built in 1883 as the main building for Stetson University, then known as DeLand Academy. The building was named after Julia E. Maggi, the wife of Stetson University's founder, John B. Stetson. Maggi Smith Hall was a state-of-the-art facility for its time, featuring a library, classrooms, and a chapel. It was the center of campus life for Stetson students for over 50 years.
