General Note: Broward Hall is named in memory of Annie Douglass Broward (1867-1953), Governor Napoleon Bonaparte Broward's wife. She was a strong supporter of charitable, educational, and public welfare programs in Florida and campaigned vigorously for women's equal rights and child welfare laws. She helped organize the Florida Parent-Teachers Association and was the first president of the Jacksonville Women's Club. The hall was dedicated in 1954. Originally built to house women, Broward Hall went co-ed in 1972¿the last women's residence to do so. Guy Fulton designed Broward Hall and construction was completed at a cost of $1.66 million. Broward Hall is part of the the Broward/ Rawlings/ Yulee Residence Area. It's near an outdoor swimming pool, a series of tennis courts, and a large grassy area dubbed "Broward Beach" where students and residents meet to enjoy the sun. In close proximity is the recently-constructed Broward Dining Facility.
Funding: Funded in part by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Ephemeral Cities Project.
