In gratitude for the lasting benefits Bryson College provided for so many students, her Alumni and Friends have provided this Memorial Fountain to perpetuate the "Associate Reformed Presbyterian College in the West." This fountain is dedicated in memory of the first President of Bryson College, Dr. Hunter Bryson Blakely, his successors, faculty, personnel, all Bryson Alumni and Friends of the College. Bryson College was founded in Fayetteville, Tennessee, in 1919 and closed in 1929, merging with her sister A.R. Presbyterian Institution, Erskine College.

The ten stones bordering this memorial represent the ten school terms Bryson College was in operation. They came from the site of the arch type stone building which for many years crossed Elk River at Fayetteville. Because of the unique design and beauty of the bridge, the Bryson College yearbook was called The Bridge.
