Which historic hotel was once the first women's dormitory in the state of Arkansas?

If you guessed the Inn at Carnall Hall (1905) in Fayetteville, Arkansas, you guessed correctly! Carnall Hall is named for Miss Ella Howison Carnall, an associate professor of English from 1881-84. The building, built in 1906, was the state's first young women's dormitory, one of six new buildings on the campus completed that year. Colonial Revival in its design influence and detailing, Carnall Hall features an unusual additive composition in an ingenious plan to build a long, sprawling structure while retaining its small scale and picturesque, natural quality. Last used as a dormitory in 1960s, Carnall Hall subsequently housed various academic departments and even served as a fraternity house before falling into disrepair and closing in 1991. Dedicated preservations have since delivered it to its present-day grandeur without sacrificing any of its old-world charm.
