David Lipscomb's Home
Beaman Library Special Collections and Archives
Nashville Bible School
President's Home (Avalon)
Residence built by David and Margaret Lipscomb following their gift of approximately 60 acres and their home to Nashville Bible School. David died in 1917 and Margaret lived there until her death on March 5, 1926. The home then served as the residence of the president of the college for many years, later being used as classrooms, the library, dormitory space, and offices. Between 1989 and 1992 the Associated Ladies for Lipscomb [now Associated Women for Lipscomb] undertook a complete restoration of the house. It is now used as a space for meetings, social functions and as an elegant bed and breakfast.
