Greenbrier College For Women


Lewisburg Female Institute was originally incorporated by an act of the Virginia General Assembly on April 7, 1858, but it is unclear whether this school ever opened. In 1874 renewed efforts by Lewisburg citizens resulted in the creation of the Lewisburg Female Institute, which later became Greenbrier College for Women.
