North Residence Hall, located on Hillsborough Street, was originally the Lemon Tree Inn, a privately-owned hotel. Later it became the John Yancey Hotel, offering a restaurant and "Merry Monk" nightclub to visitors. The hotel was a favorite establishment among legislators and other politicians during the 70's. When enrollment increased at NC State in the 1980's, the University bought the hotel to serve as a residence hall.

Yancey donated all of the furniture and North Hall became the first dormitory on campus to have air-conditioning and other amenities. A strict conduct policy was designed to make sure that the new residents, who called the building "Merry Monk Dorm", kept it in good condition. The adoption of North Hall became the first time that NC State had independently purchased off-campus property for student housing.
