Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Judson College Marion Alabama
Elegant Jewett Hall the heart of Judson College s Marion, Alabama campus has had the misfortune of burning down twice. The original Greek Revival style building dated back to 1840 but succumbed to fire in 1888, while the structure built in its place was struck by lightning in 1947; the subsequent reconstruction was completed in 1951, and this version still stands to this day. A major renovation of the building in 2003 by Alabama and Georgia based firm Davis Architects also saw the hall s distinctive cupola tower, as well as roof and windows, get a total refresh. Judson College has the honor of being the only women s college in the state of Alabama and is the fifth oldest women specific institution in the country. The Alabama Baptist Convention affiliated school owes its 1838 founding to people from the Siloam Baptist Church. Today, Judson s beautiful, rural 80 acre campus is an educational hub for its small undergraduate student body of around 322.
