Construction of the main building at Peace College began in 1858, with a planned opening for classes in 1861. However, with the outbreak of the Civil War, education was suspended, and the structure served as a Confederate hospital until the end of the war. Union forces then used it for the Freedmen's Bureau until the college took over again.
Peace College, established in 1857 in Raleigh, had its inception in the ardent wish of outstanding Presbyterians to establish a high ranking educational institution for the education of young women.
