StoppingPoints.com Editorial on Oxford Female College:
The Oxford Female College was established in 1851 by the North Carolina Baptists. After suffering some financial difficulties, the college was sold and it became a private educational institution renamed Oxford Female Seminary. In 1880, F.P. Hobgood took over leadership of the school and it grew in reputation and excellence until his death in 1924. The school closed in 1925.
