Description: Maude Frazier Hall was the first building built on the UNLV campus.

Maude Frazier Hall was closed in August of 2008, most of the building will be demolished to make way for a new building. Contractors will leave the existing telecommunications space and will add "a pioneer wall," a monument like feature recognizing the cultural significance of the site as well as the contributions of the university's founders.

The new building may be replaced by a field of grass.
