Mills Memorial Hall
Mills Memorial Hall Rollins College, Winter Park, Fl.
Located at the heart of campus, the Mills building was originally built as a library, a gift in 1951 of the Davella Mills Foundation. The library served the College for many years, but with the opening of the Olin Library in 1985, plans got underway to turn Mills into a student center.
The architects for the Mills renovation, Rogers, Lovelock & Fritz, stayed true to the original building in their redesign of the structure for its new purpose. The Mills building reopened in the summer of 1987 and currently houses the post office, student government and publications offices, student resource center, WPRK—the College’s student-run radio station, and a number of lounges and offices. Among the facilities on the first floor is the Galloway room, a large room for meetings, lectures and receptions. Also on the first floor is a bronze bust of Hamilton Holt, of which it is said that if you rub the nose, you will have good luck for years to come. It is now the Mills Memorial Center and the Peace Momument.
