Tifton -- A South Georgia college will be turning 100 year's old next year and the oldest building won't be a part of the celebrations. Renovations have begun to the oldest building at the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

Tift Hall is 99 year's old and was the first building built on the ABAC campus. Tift was originally used as a classroom, but most recently served as the main administration building.

"It'll be all new wiring on the inside with the latest technology. Everything will be the latest cutting edge technology. We want to make sure that when we move back in that we will be ready with the best information we have," ABAC administrator Mike Chason said.

This is the first time the President of the University's office has been moved in the college's history. The administrative offices are located in the Evan's building while the renovations are taking place.
