The Old College Hall is the first building in the Pacific University campus in Forest Grove, Oregon. Originally, this historic building was made for the Tualatin Academy, a secondary school, which is also the predecessor of the Pacific University.

The Old College Hall is a two-story wooden frame structure that was built in 1848 and housed the said high school. With Tualatin Academy?s closure in 1914 due to the growth of public high schools, the Pacific University remained.

Today, the Old College Hall houses the Pacific University Museum which features the founding of the institution. On display are some items once owned by important figures like the school?s founder, Tabitha Brown, and first president, Sidney Harper Marsh. There are also some pieces from the alumni.
