On the UF web site, they describe the Baughman
Center as: " designed to seamlessly integrate into the beauty of
Lake Alice on Museum Road on the University of Florida Campus. Dr. George
and Hazel Baughman, the Baughman Center's benefactors, envisioned an intimate
shelter that, beneath graceful arches, presents an inspirational setting
for contemplation, appropriate performing arts events and celebration."(Baughman)
A Rainy Day Idea
Dr. George and Hazel Baughman donated $1 million to UF toward the building
of the Baughman Center. According to Alicia Kuntz, a supervisor at the
Baughman Center, Baughman got the idea for the center on a rainy day.
After five years of planning, construction began on the Baughman Center.
It was completed in the summer of 2000.
