The lot was purchased from the Masons (Freemasonry) for $150.00, and the cost of the building was $1,700.00. Twenty-five pews were placed in the church (church (building)) and were sold for bids ranging from $75 to $150 or were rented for $8 a year. This was the only source of income at the time. The building was completed, and on April 12, 1831, the University of Alabama held charter ceremonies here. Additions and changes to the church building have taken place over the years: in 1882 the building was enlarged and remodeled from Greek revival to Gothic style, and the bell tower was added. An organ (Pipe Organ) was installed in 1830 when the building was finished, but in 1941 the console was moved from the south to the north side of the chancel. The parish hall and rectory were begun in 1906, but in 1952 the old rectory was torn down and ground was broken for the chapel and education building.

By 2000, OSI had provided seed and support funding for leagues in Detroit, Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama), Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), the San Francisco Bay area, Baltimore, Providence (Providence, Rhode Island), and Southern California. Before ending the program, they had provided funding for the establishment of UDLs, adding Los Angeles , Newark (Newark, New Jersey), and Washington, D.C.. All of those leagues are still operating in 2010, and continue to serve students and provide educational opportunities that would otherwise not exist.That continued operation shows that the OSI initiative has been a great success in creating a program that would be able to gain public and private support in order to continue even when the initial OSI grants ended. One example is the D.C. UDL. Since 2002, that league has raised over $800,000 to fund the continuing existence and growth of debate. In addition to OSI, the league has had contributions from the Fasken Foundation, the Donner Foundation, The Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation, the D.C.

Moore Athletic Facility and the football building and practice fields.

In the 1990s marquee concerts and events that the arena had seen in the previous two decades grew scarce as the facility became more outdated and became mostly devoted to Crimson Tide athletic events.

With an endless supply of curious visitors the proprietor started charging 10¢ a gander to see the notorious outlaw. The corpse was later loaned out to various exhibitors, including Adams' brother in Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama), and Captain Harvey Lee Boswell, before it came into the possession of O. C. Brooks in 1907. He featured the well-preserved remains in his traveling show for 40 years.
