Constructed: 2004-2006

Map it for me

In 2004, the College of William and Mary began a plan to construct two residence halls on the site of Barksdale Field at 700 Landrum Drive. Completed in 2006 at a cost of an estimated $29 million, the Jamestown Residences contain approximately 128,000 square feet of living space for students.

At its April 2016 meeting, the Board of Visitors unanimously approved a resolution renaming the residence halls in memory of two key figures in the university’s African-American history. Jamestown North will become Hardy Hall, in honor of longtime student affairs administrator Carroll Hardy. Jamestown South will become Lemon Hall, in memory of Lemon, an enslaved man owned by William & Mary in the early 18th century and for whom the Lemon Project is named [1]
