Construction began in 1963 when the Harry B. Graham Co. received a $996,997 contract. The Board of Visitors named the building for Jessie Ball DuPont. The official dedication ceremony for the dormitory was held on May 8, 1966. The dormitory began to house freshman men in 1976.

Today, the building serves as a co-ed dormitory for freshman undergraduates.
