In November 1949, Huntsville's leaders learned that their lengthy campaign to open an extension center in the city had been approved by the University of Alabama. Three months later, in what later became Stone Middle School, the new University of Alabama Huntsville Center began offering ten freshman-level classes. In 1969, with the addition of new facilities, UAH was made an autonomous university by the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama.
