Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary - Trull Administration Building and McMillan Classroom Building
Architect: Creer and Roessner (1961)
100 East 27th Street, 78705

Trull Administration Building and McMillan Classroom Building are part of the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, founded in 1902, campus. They are significant due to their inclusion in the 108 year old institution and the range of architectural styles exhibited on the campus. The Austin Presbyterian Seminary campus offers buildings spanning the transformation of religious architecture from gothic revival (chapel) to mid-century modern (Trull and McMillan). These mid-century buildings are characterized by their modern elements: a two-story steel frame and brick facade; glass curtain walls on center, North and South sides; a low pitch roofline, except for the transverse roof section over the glass curtain wall.
