The school consisted of five major buildings, Catherine Hall, Washington Hall, Hammond Hall, Carnegie Auditorium, and Davis Hall (gymnasium). After the college shut its doors in 1982, the campus has since then been bought by it's neighboring college, Rust College. The neglected buildings have become a project for a rehabilitation program through several Mississippi funding sources.
In 1980, the Mississippi Industrial College was named a National Register of Historic Places. This historic landmark, which was first founded by the Mississippi Conference of the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church, has now become a focus of preservation.
