Gayle Hall

Gayle Hall houses the departments of Agriculture and Family & Consumer Sciences within the College of Science. McNeese constructed this three-story building in 1969 with the design team of Harry Baker Smith and Associates, contractor services by Bartley, Inc., and under the leadership of Louisiana State Governor, John J. McKeithen. The Agriculture building sits on Ryan Street alongside Contraband Bayou. The University named the building for Arthur Gayle, a Lake Charles businessman and president of the Association of Commerce who was instrumental in founding the university.
