- This was
located at Second and Lindsley in South Nashville and covered city blocks
between Lindsley (South Market street) and Middleton. Although, only
one of the University buildings remains today and houses metro offices
(the one shown in your photograph) there were two other dorm buildings
on campus. One was called Lindsley Hall. Other buildings on campus was
the original Mongomery Bell Academy that was a prep school for the University,
The chancellor's residence at the Lindsley ave entrance, and another
brick home type near Middleton which was part of the Peabody college
development I believe. I believe that Adolphis Heiman (a Prominent Nashville
Architect of that period designed many of the buildings on the campus.
Academy became Davidson College in 1803 and Cumberland College in 1806.
Lack of funds closed it in 1816. It reopened in 1822 and became the
University of Nashville in 1826. One of its developments was Peabody
College for Teachers, which went to its present location in 1911.
