The Confederate Home and College, a cherished institution in Charleston, was built circa 1800. From 1810 to 1825 it served as the home of Governor John Geddes. During this time President James Monroe visited and stayed with the Governor. Before the Civil War, it operated as the Carolina Hotel and also housed the Federal Court.

 

In 1867, Mary Amarinthia Snowden and her sister, Isabella Yates Snowden, established a home for Confederate widows and orphans. Later they started a college on the premises. It is still known as the Confederate Home and College. The spirit and compassion of the Snowden sisters lives on today as the Confederate Home and College is a source of 5 college scholarships and moderately priced housing for qualified residents.
