Alexander Johnston Hall

Alexander Johnston Hall, the second oldest building at Rutgers, was designed by Nicholas Wyckoff in 1830 to provide a home for the Rutgers Preparatory School and the two student literary societies, Philoclean and Peithessophian. Forty years later, Henry Janeway Hardenberg, the architect of Kirkpatrick Chapel and Geology Hall, added a two-story wing to the north side of the building in 1870. Subsequently, a third story over the entire structure was added to serve as a gymnasium. The Rutgers Preparatory School remained in the building until 1963, when it moved to its current campus on Easton Avenue.

In 1964, the Rutgers Board of Governors renamed the building in honor of Alexander Johnson, an 1870 graduate of Rutgers College who taught classics in the Rutgers Preparatory School for ten years and wrote extensively on American history.
