By the time Furman Hall was built in 1907, Kirkland Hall had been rebuilt with its battlements. So Furman was designed as a stone castle to compliment Kirkland. When Furman Hall opened it was called the most modern chemistry / pharmacy building in the United States. Furman's grey stone composition stands in sharp contrast to adjacent brick buildings - the collegiate Gothic Calhoun and Garland Halls built in the late 1920s and the contemporary-style Law School building.
