William Samford hall in Auburn, Alabama

William J. Samford Hall is a structure on the campus of Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. It is an icon of Auburn University and houses the school's administration. The building is named for William J. Samford, the Governor of Alabama from 1900 to 1901.

When Auburn University opened in 1859, classes were held in a structure named "Old Main" on the current site of Samford Hall. On June 24, 1887, Old Main was destroyed by fire. The following year, Samford Hall was constructed, using, in part, bricks salvaged from the ruins of Old Main.

Today, Samford Hall houses the school's administration, accounting, planning, and public relations offices.
