Virtual Tour: Raymond Hall

Raymond Hall, Belhaven University

|    

In the past Raymond Hall has been used for many purposes.  When this two-story building was built in the summer of 1940 it contained four apartments and intended to be used for faculty apartments.  But its original use was as a practice house for home economics classes.  In 1956 this facility was converted into a small men's dormitory when Belhaven, for the first time, became a coeducational campus. 

Raymond Hall is now the home of the Belhaven Blazers Athletic Departments. All men and women athletic programs including football, baseball, basketball, soccer, softball, volleyball, tennis, cross-country and golf are located in one central location.

This building was named in honor of Dr. T. W. Raymond, president of Mississippi Synodical College from 1891 to 1921.
