On this site stood the Wesleyan Female College, started circa 1869. This institution offered courses in ancient and modern languages, instrumental music, vocal lessons and ornamental branches, with collegiate, academic and primary departments. Lasting into the 1890s, it was closed by the trustees, and became the site of the Ogilvie Training School for Boys. These and other institutions helped establish Brownsville's reputation as an early cultural center.
