If you were at Wilkes before 1967 you would have known Roth Hall as Chesapeake and Delaware Halls. They were built in the 1880s as a block of four houses with a common facade. The homes belonged to Benjamin Reynolds, a businessman, and were designed by the Wilkes-Barre architectural firm of Kipp and Podmore.

During the 1900s, Roth Hall was renovated into apartments, but the basic original structure of the building remains intact.
