A Historic Institution Of Higher Learning: Paine College

Paine College Historic District, in Augusta, Georgia, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on December 26, 2012. Representing one of the few institutions of higher education created by a biracial board of trustees in Georgia for African-American students, Paine College Historic District was found historically important on the state level. Important for its role in education and African American heritage, the event was marked by a statement from Paine College President George C. Bradley, who wrote, “This is a major milestone in the college’s 131 years of existence, and we look forward to making additional milestones and accomplishments in the legacy of Paine College.”….

Founded in 1882 by trustees from the Methodist Episcopal Church, South (MEC-S)and the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church in America (CEMC) with the goal of educating African-American youth, the institution was, from the beginning, a coeducational school.  Paine College continues to serve its original purpose of providing quality education and remains associated with the successor denominations of the founding churches. http://1.usa.gov/X6IUfW
