Old Centre is the heart of Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, both literally and figuratively. "The name comes from its location in the center of the state, although why the English spelling "Centre" was used instead of the American "Center" is unclear" (CentreCyclopedia).Just as Centre College is in the center of the state of Kentucky, Old Centre is in the center of the college's campus. Old Centre is currently used as offices of the president, vice president for academic affairs, and vice president for college relations, as well as meeting rooms and a classroom, though it has had many other uses in the past.
