Long Description:

Cravath Hall

3A-154

     Text: “This neo-Gothic structure first served as the Erastus M. Cravath Memorial Library. Named for Cravath, the university's first president (1875-1900) it was designed by Nashville architect Henry Bibbs and built in 1929-30. The interior walls depict several murals by Aaron Douglas, the leading Harlem or Negro Renaissance painter and founder of the Fisk Art Department.”

    Marker is easy to get to. It is located on the Fisk University campus. They are open to the public during reasonable times, however you will need to check in with security before going around the campus. I just showed up and started taking pictures, and security responded to me. After clearing up the issue, they were fine with allowing me to remain on campus. Calling ahead is suggested.
