The Ward Rooming House, once an important part of the social fabric of Overtown, opened its doors once again as an art gallery and exhibition hall. Built in 1925, the Ward Rooming House opened its doors to black laborers and Seminole workers who were not welcomed elsewhere in the City they were helping to build. The works of Purvis Young now hang on the walls of the gallery.
