On August 24, 1891, 95 acres of the old plantation where slaves had once toiled were purchased for the purpose of establishing the "Delaware College for Colored Students." Loockerman Hall became the center of the campus, serving variously as a dormitory, classroom, and administration building. In 1971 the structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service.
