Significance: The Rockefeller Hall Bath House, on the campus of Tuskegee University, was built as an auxiliary building to Rockefeller Hall Boys' Dormitory. The dormitory was constructed with a gift from J.D. Rockefeller in 1903, and the bath house is believed to have been constructed at the same time. The dormitory is historically significant in that the ground floor rooms served as the residence for George Washington Carver for thirty-five years. These rooms were a combination of library, picture gallery, museum, and hot house. The bath house is presumed to have served Carver and other faculty members. The Bath House is a one story brick structure originally used for bathing facilities. There have been some modifications over the years and the structure is now used as storage.
