Additional Details:
The corner stone of Greensboro Female College was laid in 1843 and was the first regularly chartered women's college in North Carolina and the second south of the Potomac. The College was burned in 1863 and reopened in 1873. In 1903 it was advertised for sale, but its Alumnae purchased the institution and presented it to the Methodist Church. In 1904 it was again destroyed by fire, and again the Alumnae came to the fore in assisting in its rebuilding
