Mary Holmes Seminary (MS)...a history at HBCUStory

Pamela Foster posted a fascinating history of Mary Holmes Seminary at HBSCUStory.  The institution was founded in Jackson, MS in 1892 as Mary Holmes Seminary to educate young women.  The building was destroyed by fire in 1897 and was rebuilt in West Point, MS.  Mary Holmes became coeducational in 1932.  It was affiliated with the Presbyterian Church and after struggling financially trustees voted to suspend operations for fall 2003.
