Cunningham Hall was built in the 1949-1950 school year for the purpose of housing all female college students. The building was named for Mrs. Eugenia Isabelle Cunningham, a dedicated and sacrificing employee who served Oakwood College as Matron, cook, and other various other positions as the need arose.
