Henderson County, Kentucky


Two years ago this school was organized by Miss Mary Stewart Bunch, principal, and in June last closed its second annual term. During the session of the Legislature of 1876, '77, a most liberal charter was granted the Home School for girls. Its diplomas rank with any institution of learning in the State, and those desiring to fit themselves for teachers will find in its provisions special advantages. The principal, Miss Bunch, is a highly educated lady, and one who has had large experience in the art of teaching and training the young. Her school is divided into three departments, primary, intermediate and collegiate. Every study is taught necessary to the graduating of accomplished and cultured ladies. Miss Bunch is assisted by Miss Adrienne Blackwell, who has charge of Latin classes, Madame Fauche Scott, French and German; Miss Mary L. Withers, instrumental music; Mrs. Mary E. Vigus, the art of drawing, painting, designing, decorative and industrial art, wood carving, etc. This school is largely patronized, and at its First Annual Commencement held last June, graduated four young ladies with the highest honors.
