Flier for the Columbia Institute's May Festival held on May 12, 1927. Construction of the Episcopal girls' school in Columbia, Tennessee, began in 1835 and the first class of the Columbia Female Institute was offered in 1837. The Great Depression was responsible for its closing in 1932. The city bought the imposing 3-story, turreted building in 1944 but it burned down in 1959.
