Architecturally inspiring, the campus merged the design philosophies of the neoclassical movement and the style of the plantations in the American south.

Today the campus sits unused and largely forgotten; the surrounding forest has crept into the open areas of the campus, the exteriors of the buildings are beginning to crumble and the elements are taking their toll on the interior.
