Designed to house offices, laboratories and classrooms, museum space, and an auditorium for the Departments of Entomology and Zoology, Fernald Hall was dedicated on November 11, 1910.  Built in a relatively conventional, symmetrical Georgian Revival style, the building was sited slightly north of the old entomological laboratory. Constructed of brick with stone trimmings, it features a steel frame with cement floors and slate roof, heavily overhanging bracketed eaves, and vertical strips of brick at the corners and windows.  It originally held a zoological museum of 12,000 specimens, with space on the main floor for sixteen cases; a geological museum with six cases; and an insect collection of over 100,000 specimens.
