ABAC historic front restored after years of construction

After almost 7 years of hard work, Georgia state officials joined at the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College campus in Tifton for the rededication of the three original buildings from the original 1908 campus.

ABAC Officials say after trying to decide whether or not the buildings were in good enough shape to refurbish, it is a gratifying feeling to see the project completed and the buildings restored to their original state.

Tift Hall, Lewis Hall and Herring Hall all feature historic architecture to incorporate the old with the new, and Director of Capital Planning Melvin Merrill says having them refurbished will allow the campus to move forward and achieve great success.
