Graves Hall was the first building on the present Atlanta campus of Morehouse College. In addition to providing suitable dormitory space for students, Graves Hall has been used as the President's residence and the campus main reception facility. Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, the sixth president of the College, often entertained students and guests at Graves Hall.
Presently, it is a dorm for freshman students. Recent preservation efforts included addition of a lift for access by the disabled, a new boiler system, and the creation of a lounge area for the members of the physical plant team.
