​Historic Bayard Sharp Hall houses the Jefferson Pipe Organ.

Built circa 1843, the structure served as St. Thomas Episcopal Church until 1956. For several years after, it was home to the Newark Library, and in 1996 UD purchased the building and began renovations, including the installation of the Dobson Pipe Organ.

Bayard Sharp Hall has been in the National Register of Historic Places since 1982
