  • Randolph County working to make it a historic landmark
  • Was sold for private use in 2014 so it could be restored 

The Asheboro Female Academy on the corner of Walker Avenue was the first school for girls in Asheboro originally opened in 1839.

“These private academies served a bridge between the time that there was no formal education and there was a critical mass for the public schools,” said Ross Holt with the Randolph County Public Library.
