Maples was part of the Seminary campus complex and is an unusual style for this campus. It has also been the home of significant individuals, including Seminary head W. W. Moore.
A number of detrimental changes have been made to the exterior of Maples: chimneys have been removed, aluminum replacement windows have been added, and ornamental cornices and other details are gone. The interior has been remodeled for use as office space.
