The building was originally part of the now defunct Ehrmantraut County Community College system and was completed in 2005 and contains several lecture halls, the main campus library, and the offices of many department heads. When ECCC ceased operations in 2018, the building along with all other buildings on the Quarry Pit campus were purchased by Devoner University. The building reopened on January 4, 2019.
The Pfeiffer Hall Time Capsule is also buried in the building's basement and is scheduled to be opened on March 2, 2105.
