Nashville - The Gothic architectural style of the Scarritt-Bennett Center has intrigued visitors and native Nashvillians for nearly ninety years.
Built in 1924, the Scarritt-Bennett Center campus was originally known as Scarritt College for Christian Workers. The purpose of the school was to train young women to become missionaries. In 1988, the college organized as a non-profit agency with a mission of education, retreat and conference space and a commitment to promoting racial equality, cross-cultural understanding, the empowerment of women and spiritual renewal.
The buildings on the campus include Wightman Chapel, Bennett Hall, Scarritt Hall, the Laskey Building, among others.
