The Ephraim Ponder House, a Classical Revival Eclectic style house, was originally built in 1856 for Ephraim
Ponder, a slave trader who enslaved the Flipper family. (Henry Flipper became the first black graduate of
West Point in 1877.) Later the house was used as a dormitory for Young’s Female College (the large stone
building behind this home). A breezeway that connected the two buildings and a large square cupola on the
roof’s apex no longer exists.
