BTW Nomination

Historic Booker T. Washington Auditorium
nominated to
National Registry


The Center for Civil Rights History and Research at the University of South Carolina has made an appeal to the South Carolina State Board of Review to nominate historic Booker T. Washington Auditorium to the National Register of Historic Places.

Jill Found, graduate assistant for the Center presented the nomination in July at the South Carolina Archives and History Building in Columbia.

If the nomination is approved by the state board, it will move forward to the National Park Service for consideration.

Nominations approved at the state level are usually added to the National Register.

The National Register is the U.S. government's official list of properties and districts deemed worthy of historic preservation for their historical significance.

Adding the Booker T. Washington Auditorium to the National Register will identify the building as historically significant and deserving of preservation. 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
