From its beginning, Bellingrath Hall (1928) has served as the College’s science building. It was named in appreciation of a generous gift from Mrs. W.A. Bellingrath of Montgomery. Renovated in 2008, the building houses natural and physical science classrooms, laboratories, and biology and chemistry faculty offices.
Miriam Jackson Home (1924) was the gift of Dr. and Mrs. Fred M. Jackson of Birmingham, Alabama. Originally used as an infirmary, it now houses offices for faculty in the Department of Religion, the Office of College and Alumni Relations, the Office of Communications, the Center for Career and Vocation, and the Phyllis Gunter Snyder Center for Campus Ministries.
Built in 1909, John Jefferson Flowers Memorial Hall was the first building on the Montgomery campus. Today, it is a hub of campus activity. Flowers Hall houses the Offices of the President, Admission, College and Alumni Relations, Communication, and the Provost, as well as classrooms and faculty offices.
Flowers Hall was designed by Harvard University architecture professor H. Langford Warren. Warren modeled the building after the Collegiate Gothic architecture of Cambridge and Oxford Universities in his native England. This building set the architectural style of most of the buildings on campus.
Flowers Hall foyer leads into Leon and Myra Allman Ligon Chapel, the site of countless Huntingdon traditions. Rededicated September 3, 1999, it was named for Huntingdon benefactors Leon Edward Ligon III and his wife, Myra, whose gift supported the renovation of the space earlier that year.
The renovation included the expansion of the College’s Bellingrath Memorial Organ. Designed by the late professor emeritus of music Dr. Harald Rohlig, the organ boasts 141 ranks and a four-manual keyboard. Dr. Rohlig performed the inaugural concert on the instrument in April 2001.
Jean Rodgers Chapel was named in honor of the Huntingdon alumna who served as registrar from 1950 to 1987. Located in the room formerly known as the “prayer room,” Rodgers Chapel seats 12 for small services. This chapel was dedicated May 26, 2010. Ms. Rodgers passed away October 2, 2011.
From its beginning, the College enjoyed the friendship and generosity of Prattville native Julia A. Pratt. This building, constructed in 1912 as a residence for the president and his family, faculty, and students, was named in Ms. Pratt’s honor. Pratt Hall closed in August 2019.
Weenona Hanson Hall (1924) bears the name of Mrs. Victor H. Hanson. Constructed perpendicular to Pratt Hall, it was funded through contributions by Mr. Hanson and Montgomery citizens. This building is a residential facility.

It was dedicated in 1950 to “the glory of God and the service of the institution.”
Seay Twins Art Gallery (1927) was constructed as the “Toy Theatre,” presenting small theatre productions in that era. In 1972, the College recommissioned the building as an art gallery. The gallery was renovated and rededicated as Seay Twins Art Gallery in August 2007. Its name commemorates twins Noble Seay Jones and Margaret “Peggy” Seay Compton, both members of the Class of 1949. The renovation was made possible by a generous gift from the late Montgomery architect Renis Jones, husband of Noble Seay Jones.
Seay Twins Gallery offers special shows of student and guest artists’ work. Poetry readings, Capstone presentations, and other academic events are also held in this space.
Massey Beach is a sand volleyball court used for student recreation and intramurals. It is built in the footprint of the former Massey Hall.
“The Hut” (1922), constructed as the YWCA building, houses the Office of Campus Activities and the Office of Health and Wellness. The Hut was built through generous contributions by students, matched dollar-for-dollar by the College treasury.
Houghton Library (1929) was named in memory of Mr. Mitchell B. Houghton, a founding member of the College’s board of trustees who served until his death in 1925. At the entrance to the library’s first floor, the newly refurbished area known as the Caroline Slawson Commons opened in fall 2019.
