Nelson Hall was constructed in 1962 and was initially called the Industrial Arts Building. The building was later named in honor of Maurice J. Nelson, distinguished professor of industrial arts who served the institution for 41 years (1918-59). A connecting link from Nelson Hall to Armstrong Hall contains art studios and the Effie Conkling gallery, named for the person who taught art at Mankato State for 32 years.
Armstrong Hall was constructed in 1964, and was at that time called the English-Education Building. In 1967 it was named in honor of Dr. Grace Armstrong, who taught professional education at the institution for 36 years (1927-63). The building currently houses various classrooms and offices of the Colleges of Arts and Humanities, the College of Education, and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
