Inscription
Built by Reverend John McCullough in 1849. Patterned after private Presbyterian schools in historic Chester County, Pennsylvania. The institution was a landmark in pioneer Texas education. Eminently suited for the purpose, the school compound occupied this half-block, upon which the county jail now stands. After five years of successful operation, death and destitution from yellow fever epidemics which prostrated Galveston forced the seminary to close.
