Long Description:
Lucy Cobb Institute, a College for Girls, was established in 1858 through the effort of T.R.R. Cobb and named for his daughter, Lucy. Later, three of his nieces taught here: Miss Mildred Rutherford, Principal, Mrs. Mary Ann Lipscombe, Mrs. Bessie Rutherford Mell. Closed as a school in 1931, it serves as a dormitory for girls attending the University of Georgia. Nearby is Seny-Stovall Chapel, named for George I. Senes who contributed the funds to build it and Miss Nellie Stovall who solicited his help. He also gave a pipe organ and paintings for the walls of Lucy Cobb.
