Hayes Hall was formerly the main building of Virginia College and Virginia Seminary, founded in 1886 as an institution espousing the self-help educational principles for African Americans advocated by Booker T. Washington. Completed in 1888, the prodigious though deteriorated structure was demolished in 1988.
