Dorothy Hall

We also felt that we must not only teach the students how to prepare their food but how to serve and eat it properly.

Hospitality continues to reign in this building as it has for decades. Students today learn about food preparation and hotel management here at the Kellogg Conference Center in Dorothy Hall. Originally female students attended classes here in sewing, childcare, nursing, and dietetics.

For many years the trustees met here, and George Washington Carver lived here from 1938 until he died in 1943. The building is named for Dorothy Lamb Woodbridge, great-great-great grandmother of Caroline and Olivia Phelps-Stokes, major contributors to Tuskegee Institute.
