Carson Hall was built in 1926 and named for Mrs. Anne C. Carson of Cincinnati, Ohio, who left money for its construction in memory of her sister, Mrs. Margaret Kyle, through the Board of National Missions of the United Presbyterian Church USA (UPCUSA). It originally housed the president's office, all other administrative offices, and classrooms. Renovation in 1978 was accomplished through gifts from the George Perkins Foundation and the Kresge Foundation.
Architect A. G. Lamont from the Board of National Missions of UPCUSA designed several of the first buildings on the campus.
