Street Hall is described as a "beacon of Yale's then-nascent engagement with New Haven" due to Augustus Russell Street's request that the building have entrances facing both Old Campus and the city sidewalk. When the renovation is complete, visitors will be able to enter it from the Yale University Art Gallery. The Art Gallery plans to expand across the bridge over High Street into Street Hall.
The building is the final resting place of John Trumbull, the famed American painter.
