A black and white image of Halifax District Hospital, located on Bethune-Cookman College campus. In 1931, Halifax took over McLeod Hospital after its lease expired. The African American students had their own ward in the hospital. In the center of the image is the two-story, wood siding hospital. It has a first and second-story porch. On the first story porch, there are rocking chairs. A sidewalk leads up to the front steps. A dirt driveway leading up to the building has two cars parked on it. There are many trees visible in the image, such as tall palm trees and oak trees with Spanish moss. At the right of the image, in the background through the trees, can be seen the sides of other buildings and a white picket fence. To the left of the hospital can be seen a fenced-in area where a horse is standing. At the left of the image is an unidentified white building. A bench sits next to a tree in front of the hospital. A sign on the front porch of the hospital partially reads, "--Eod." The complete sign most likely reads, "McLeod Hospital," as seen in other photographs of the period. Written on the back of the image in pencil is, "Halifax Dist. Hosp. of Daytona Beach which is located on campus of Bethune Cookman College; bldg ext; 1930." A series of numbers is also written on the back. The photographer of the image is unknown.
