The building is named after the school’s founder and first dean, John Beale Davidge; it was designed by architect Robert Carey Long, Sr. and constructed in 1812. On the right is the Rosenfeld Building, built for E. Rosenfeld and Company in 1905 by a leading local architectural firm of the early 20th century, Parker and Thomas.
