Stetson University Campus Historic District


Stetson Sampson Hall 2, Deland, FL. It was built in 1908 and was financed by steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Designed by Henry John Klutho, the first Floridian to earn membership in the American Institute of Architects, it shows the conservative Neoclassicism found in many Carnegie libraries across the United States. It was later renamed Sampson Hall to honor C.T. Sampson.
The two-story brick landmark is one of the few Klutho buildings remaining in Florida, making it a significant part of Florida's architectural heritage.
