This Liberal Arts College for women, opened in 1906, granted its first Bachelor of Arts Degrees in 1910. Established under the will of Indiana Fletcher Williams as a memorial to her only daughter, Daisy, the College is located on a 2800-acre tract of land acquired by Elijah Fletcher before 1830. The eighteenth-century homestead, remodeled and named Sweet Briar House by the Fletchers, is set in a boxwood garden.
