The Inn at Carnall Hall at the University of Arkansas was initially built to serve as the college’s first dormitory for women. The building was named for Miss Ella Howison Carnall, an 1881 graduate of the University of Arkansas, who for many years served as an associate professor of English and modern languages. 

Today, Ella’s Table pays homage to Miss Carnall by bringing together Razorbacks and Fayetteville visitors alike around the table for great food and genuine community. We look forward to welcoming you to Ella’s Table!
