Ephraim Ponder House

This 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.
