Miles College Doubles the Size of Its Campus

Miles College, the historically black educational institution in Fairfield, Alabama, has purchased the 41-acre site adjacent to its campus which once housed the Lloyd Nolan Hospital. The acquisition more than doubles the size of the Miles College campus. The college will now conduct a study on whether to renovate the existing hospital structure for the college’s use or to raze the hospital and construct new buildings on the site. The college plans to house a health and wellness center, a fine arts facility, the School of International Studies and Public Policy, and a new law school on the acquired property.

Miles College, founded in 1905, has total enrollments of about 1,750 students, almost all of whom are black.
