Provenance note:
Fayetteville Presbytery founded the school as the Red Springs Seminary, and the school was renamed in 1915 for Flora MacDonald, a heroine of the 1770s from southeastern North Carolina.
Architectural note:
The Neo-Classical Revival style campus was built in stages and includes a turn of the century central rotunda with encircling balustrades and woodwork. The architects provided a more elaborate composition for the college's main building than was actually built.
Historical note:
The college closed in 1961, and is now the Flora MacDonald Academy. The structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
