George A. France of Toledo, member of the Ohio Board of Regents, donated this building in honor of his mother. Built in 1925-1926, France Hall has remained a women's residence hall and is presently the only non-coed residence hall on campus. Heidelberg's local sorority chapters currently occupy meeting space in France Hall.
Pfleiderer, Laird, and France Halls represent a third, early 20th century expansion of the Heidelberg Campus. The Gothic style, grey stone facades and tile roofs are characteristic of these and several other building built on campus during the first quarter of the 20th Century.
