Once located at the intersection of 10th and Jefferson Streets, the Albemarle Female Institute was founded in 1853 as a University school for young women.[1] In 1861 the school issued to Charlotte "Lottie" Moon one of the first Master of Arts degrees awarded to a woman by a southern institution - Lottie learned Latin, Greek, French, and Italian. The school would later be one of several schools that became St. Anne's-Belfield School. [2] It was founded by Baptist pastor John A. Broadus and Crawford A. Toy. [3]
