The Keatchie Women’s College began operations in 1856. It functioned as an all-women’s school until 1879 when it began admitting men as well.
Located on Highway 172 (Mansfield Road), the old Keatchie Women’s College was converted into a military hospital during the Civil War. Cold spots and disembodied sounds of suffering soldiers have been reported at the location.
