Davidson College, founded in 1837 by Southern Presbyterians, is home to two historic buildings from the antebellum period. The buildings were erected by the Eumenean and Philanthropic literary societies in 1849 and 1850, respectively, and were primarily used for debates. After society membership declined in the early 20th century, the buildings fell into disrepair but were saved from the wrecking ball in the 1950s by a donation from alumna Mrs. Clarence Hodson (formerly Lille Brown) that covered all costs of restoration.
