Centennial Hall, 1750 Kings Road, The historic black college was founded in 1866 and was Florida's first independent institution of higher learning for African-Americans. Centennial Hall was built by Rev. R.L. Brown in 1916 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The building originally housed the college's high school department, printing plant and cafeteria. The renovated building is now the site of the college library and houses a unique collection of African art. The college was accredited in 1979 by the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges and is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.
