Title Valley Union Seminary Print
Dates of Creation circa 1847
Scope & Content Copy of an early print of the Valley Union Seminary, 1842-1852. Reverend Joshua Bradley, a Baptist minister, purchased the defunct Roanoke Female Seminary in 1842 and founded the coeducational Valley Union Seminary. Bradley laid the foundation for what would in 1852 become the Female Seminary at Botetourt Springs and in 1856 the Hollins Institute. Although Bradley left within three years of his school's establishment, he played a vital role in Hollins' history by acquiring the site that would later accommodate Virginia's first chartered women's college. The seminary was on the site of Botetourt Springs, and presently the site of Hollins University. The name J.A.F. Winkler appears in the lower left corner of the print.
