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. Most of the homes on this tour are private residences and are not open to the public, but feel free to admire the outside structure.
