  • Jefferson College was an all-male military college in Washington, Mississippi. It was the first educational institution of higher learning in Mississippi, being chartered in 1802. Its sister school was the nearby Elizabeth Female Academy. Jefferson College was the second oldest military school in the nation after the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, also chartered earlier in 1802. Although originally conceived as a college, for most of its history it was actually a college-preparatory school known as Jefferson Military College. Due to falling enrollment and financial difficulties associated with negative public attitudes towards the Vietnam War, the last classes were held in 1964. The historic campus was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 25, 1970, and designated a Mississippi Landmark in 1985.
