History

Turlington Residence Hall is the home to the "Arts Village." Located on the central campus of NC State, four-story Georgian Revival Turlington Residence Hall has a total area of 33,814 square feet. The building honors John Edwin Turlington (1884-1934), a NC State graduate of agriculture in the Class of 1907, who became a prominent agricultural economist.

Turlington's academic record was outstanding, and he was encouraged to pursue graduate work at Cornell University where he earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. His writings include research on factors affecting farm profits in local areas and on the effects of absentee ownership of citrus properties. Turlington also held a number of administrative positions, most of them at the University of Florida. He settled in Florida after a career as an adjunct professor at the University of Georgia and a superintendent of Craven County Farm Life School in N.C. His administrative responsibilities included a variety of fields: agricultural engineering, soils, agronomy, agricultural economics, and agricultural extension.
