First known as the Freshman Union, it was a private club built in 1900 by McKim, Mead & White to provide a social space for students otherwise not members of the more exclusive final clubs at Harvard College. It had a magnificent hall, comfortable reading-rooms, pleasant dining-rooms, and a good library. As the Harvard Union, it later functioned as a general dining hall for students. When Harvard University acquired the building in the late 20th Century, it was converted into the Barker Center for Humanities. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
