S. M. Varnedoe was administrator of a ten-grade private school, the Valdosta Institute, 1865 - 70. Famous among its students was J. H. "Doc" Holiday. The Masons and several churches also used the institute as a meeting place. After the purchase, in 1885, of the property from the Wells estate, a new brick building was constructed. In 1895 the Valdosta Institute became a public school. The brick building continued to house sections of the public school until it was razed in 1958.
