There is a stone column with a plaque about Fassifern School for Girls on Fleming Street Hendersonville.
Fassifern School was not just a finishing school. They had a business course as early as 1918. They had certificate programs and taught music, art, Spanish and home economics. Fassifern graduates met the requirements to be accepted at Southern Association Colleges, the University of North Carolina, Smith and Wellesley and other schools.
