Narrative:
McClung was constructed in 1910 and named for a teacher at Augusta Female Seminary (which eventually became Mary Baldwin College). In addition to teaching, Agnes McClung was also co-principal and assistant to Miss Mary Julia Baldwin. The building cost was $33,815.

In 1998, McClung was completely renovated and modernized. As the renovation proceeded, it was discovered that the building literally had engulfed a previous structure in the same location. This building was Brick House, which was built in 1869 by Miss Baldwin as a home for herself and other faculty.
