Davidge Hall, constructed in 1812, is named for the first dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Dr. John B. Davidge. Noted for its unique classical appearance, it is the oldest building in the country used continuously for medical education. The medical school, established in 1807 by the Maryland General Assembly, was the fifth to be founded in the U.S.. Following mergers with Baltimore Medical College, 1913, and the College of Physicians and Surgeons, 1915, the school became part of the state university system in 1920.
