Named for Frederick Douglass, famed runaway slave, abolitionist and statesman. Douglass came to Tuskegee in 1892 and delivered the 11th Annual Commencement address in which he "urged economy, thrift and common sense." Those words of Douglass echoed the very philosophy and sentiment of Booker T. Washington. Douglass' son, Major Charles H. Douglass, dedicated the building. Later, Douglass' great-grandson married Booker T. Washington's granddaughter Nettie, and resided in Tuskegee for a short time.
Douglass Hall was originally used as a girls' dormitory and contained a 750 seat assembly room. Funding came from General William J. Palmer of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
