Program for vocal and instrumental concerts performed by the students of Florence Synodical Female College in Florence, Alabama, on December 21 and 22, 1855. Founded in 1855 by the Presbyterian Synod of Nashville, Florence Synodical Female College trained genteel young women to take their place in the home and drawing room. The students came from across the South but mainly from northwest Alabama, and numbered around 100 in any year. The campus (which sat on the site of the current Florence Post Office) consisted of two substantial brick buildings: a dormitory and an academic building. Financial difficulties exacerbated by competition from other schools forced the college to close in 1893.
