The Board of Visitors voted in March 2015 to name the new first-year dorm building Gibbons House after William and Isabella Gibbons. The President's Commission on Slavery at the University (PCSU) established an educational exhibit in an alcove on the first floor of the Gibbons House dormitory to teach first-year students about the namesakes of the building and the larger history of slavery at UVA. The building was formally dedicated in summer 2015, and later that same year descendants of Isabella Gibbons were honored with a reception at Gibbons House.
