LeMoyne Owen College - Brownlee Hall
LeMoyne Owen College is an inner-city, 4-year educational institution of higher learning and accredited nationally as a Historically Black College & University or HBCU. As an HBCU, LeMoyne is an ongoing source of first-rate education & development for all students in the mid-south, regardless of race. As a campus landmark, the Brownlee Hall Administration building was designed & built in 1936 in the Colonial Revival Style and was listed by the U.S. Department of Interior in 2005 as a ‘contributing structure’ of the greater LeMoyne Owen College District in the National Register of Historic Places. Since 2006 Brownlee Hall has undergone a series of accessibility improvements with assistance from Title III funding of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Self+Tucker Architects has been engaged with the university from the beginning, assisting with historical landmark status, design & construction administration as funding becomes available.
