Tallahassee Female Academy

West Florida Seminary building (now Florida State University) called the female academy circa 187-. This building was located on Park Avenue between Duval and Bronough Streets

The Tallahassee Female Academy (also known as the Leon Female Academy) was one of the predecessor institutions of Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. The school started in 1843 as the Misses Bates School and was perhaps the most stable educational institution in Tallahassee until the West Florida Seminary officially began operations in 1857.

A group of Tallahassee citizens organized as a Board of Trustees for the Academy conducted operations until the school was absorbed by the West Florida Seminary in 1858. The school offered an unusually complete education for the time.[1]
