The renaming ceremony will take place on 3 April.
“This is a fitting tribute,” director of cricket Andy Hurry said. “Marcus is without a doubt one of the finest players ever to have represented Somerset.
“During his 27 seasons as a player he gave his heart and soul to Somerset and his passion and enthusiasm for the club never wavered.”
Hurry added that the decision to rename the pavilion was “unanimously approved” by the club’s committee, and also praised Trescothick’s charity work since retiring.
