Throckmorton Plant Sciences Center
The Throckmorton Plant Sciences Center houses Merrill Hall and the Departments of Agronomy and Plant Pathology.
Also known as Throckmorton Hall, this building replaced the outdated facilities in Waters Hall and expanded research facilities for many departments. The first phase of Throckmorton was completed in 1981 for a cost of $9.2 million, and a second phase followed in 1994. The building name honors R.I. Throckmorton, dean of agriculture from 1947 to 1951.
