Berea College Visitor Center
Berea College Visitor Center, managed by the Integrated Marketing & Communications department, is the starting point for a fifty-minute walking tour that provides an historic overview of the College. Covering three-quarters of a mile, this student-led tour visits notable structures including the Frost Building (originally a Carnegie Library), Phelps Stokes Chapel (built by students in 1904–1906), and the Draper Classroom Building (rededicated in 2002 following a 14-month, $11 million, eco-friendly renovation).
In addition, we offer tours of the Student Crafts program including broomcraft, weaving, woodcraft, and wrought iron production areas where students produce handmade items sold in Student Crafts on the Square (SCOTS), Boone Tavern Hotel Gift Shop and the Log House Craft Gallery.
Berea College Visitor Center features a theatre for watching historical videos of the College, and is located within a minute’s walk to Boone Tavern Hotel and the shops and galleries on College Square.
