Texas Hall is a historic building on the former campus of Trinity University in Tehuacana, Texas, U.S.. The land was donated by John Boyd.[2] It was first designed in the Gothic Revival style by Joseph Schuster, and completed in 1871.[3] It was subsequently redesigned by architect James E. Flanders in the Second Empire style between 1886 and 1892.[3] Trinity University relocated to Waxahachie, Texas in 1902, and Westminster College moved into the building, up until 1942.[3] The building is now known as the Trinity Institute.[3]

The building has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since July 12, 1978.[4]
