Davenport College was established in Lenoir in 1855 by the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, as an institution of higher learning for women. It was named for William Davenport, the largest contributor to the enterprise. William A. Lenoir offered land overlooking the town for the campus, on which a classroom building, a chapel, and a dormitory were erected. The school held its first classes in 1857 and was incorporated as Davenport Female College in 1859, when enrollment stood at 56 students, all from North Carolina and South Carolina. In 1933, the college succumbed to the economic chaos created by the Great Depression. Five years later, all remaining assets and personal properties belonging to the school were merged with Greensboro College. The buildings were transferred to the town of Lenoir for use as an elementary school. Scarce publication  (Davenport College, Lenoir, North Carolina)
