Georgia College History

History

This imposing, stately former residence hall is currently awaiting repair and restoration.  Dedicated in 1920 in honor of Sen. J. Howard Ennis (1873-1953), who had fought successfully, together with President Parks, to ensure that GN&IC would be adequately funded, able to confer four-year degrees on its graduates, and no longer considered a "department" of the University of Georgia. Ennis later served as mayor of Milledgeville from 1924 until 1927.
