    Founded in 1853 by Presbyterian minister James W. Miller (1815-1888), Live Oak Female Seminary provided educational opportunities to female boarding students and male and female day students until 1888. Miller's sister-in-law, Rebecca Stuart Red, was principal until 1875, when she opened Stuart Female Seminary in Austin. Live Oak campus included the Miller home, Oak Lodge, which housed classes on the second floor; dormitories; an auditorium; and a music conservatory. The Miller home was moved off the site and the last of the school buildings were razed in the 1970s.
