Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis Hall, formerly known as Milton Hall, is a residence hall on the campus of George Washington University (GW), located at 2222 I St., Northwest, Washington, D.C. in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood.

History[edit]

The building was designed by Robert O. Scholz and was built in 1938.[2] The building is similar in style as the neighboring Munson Hall. It is eight-stories tall, and features two bays. The exterior is faced with buff brick. The main entrance is in the recessed space between the two bays. Cast stone scrollwork is found over the door and surrounding the first floor and eighth floor windows. There are three medallions on each bay along a horizontal cast stone band above the sixth floor. In 1995 the building was named for Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, who graduated from GW in 1951. It was listed on the District of Columbia Inventory of Historic Sites and the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.
