During the final days of the Civil War, Dr. William Ward & his wife, Eliza Ward, envisioned a school for young women in Nashville that would evolve into 1 of the nation's most prestigious institutions. As the New South dawned, Ward Seminary opened its doors in September 1865. Merging with Belmont College for Young Women in 1913, Ward-Belmont operated as a college preparatory school, music conservatory, & junior college. In 1951, the high school division moved farther west, reopening as the Harpeth Hall School after Ward-Belmont's sudden closure.
