Originally named Lamar Hall in honor of R. N. Lamar, one of the original members of the Board of Directors of Georgia State College for Women, the name was changed in 1913 because Lamar was a vocal opponent of school president Marvin Parks. The board chose to honor recently deceased Governor Joseph M. Terrell with the name change. Today, it’s considered one of the most architecturally unchanged buildings on the campus.
