This Methodist liberal arts college and preparatory school was financed and built by the Methodist people of Martin and deeded to the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Located one block south on a 6-acre campus donated by George W. Martin, it was named in honor of John B. McFerrin, prominent Tennessee preacher, editor and administrator. Its first presdient was J.T. Williams. Another well-known adminsistrator was George W. Morelock. After 1924, its buildings were used first by Martin High School, then Weakley County Hospital. Martin Primary School now occupies the site.
