Morton Hall is located at the intersection of Ukrop Way (formerly Campus Drive or Botetourt Drive) and Jamestown Road, southeast of Jones Hall. It opened for use in 1972 and housed the Marshall-Wythe Institute, the John Marhshall Papers, and the Departments of History, Sociology, Government, and Economics. It was renamed Richard Lee Morton Hall in 1973 and designated the Social Science Building.
The Religion Department moved out of Morton Hall in the summer of 1980. Morton Hall also underwent asbestos removal in 1981.
