Frontiers yet unknown: the history of Warren Wilson College

Traces the history of Warren Wilson College from its founding in 1894 until 2013. Founded in 1894 in Swannanoa as the Asheville Farm School by the Woman’s Board of Home Missions of the Presbyterian Church, it was a boarding school that offered the first three grades of elementary education to underprivileged boys in the Appalachian mountains. The Farm School graduated its first high school class in 1923. In 1942, the Asheville Farm School merged with two other Presbyterian mission schools for girls, the Mossop School in Harriman, Tennessee, and the Dorland-Bell School in Hot Springs, North Carolina, to form the coeducational Warren H. Wilson Vocational Junior College, located on the Farm School campus. The junior college became Warren Wilson College, a four-year liberal arts college, in 1962.
