Healy Hall is the flagship building on the Main Campus of Georgetown University. It houses academic and administrative offices, as well as the historic Riggs Library and Gaston Hall.
Healy Hall is on the National Register of Historic Places and is also a National Historic Landmark. It is named after Patrick F. Healy, S.J., Georgetown president from 1873 to 1882 and the first African-American to head a major, predominantly white university. Work began on the building in 1877 and much of the interior was completed by the 1881-1882 academic year. Gaston Hall was completed in 1901.
