The Dream College at Black Mountain

Record #:
Founded by John Andrews Rice in 1933, Black Mountain College operated in Buncombe County town until 1965. The school never had more than fifty or so students, rarely held formal examinations, and allowed students to study as fast or as slowly as they wished. The exit examinations were grueling, but the school attracted some of the finest professors in writing, painting, sculpting, and music. Due to a lack of funding, the school closed in 1965.\r\n
