Liberty Hall Academy was built as a classical academy in the late 1700s, with plans to turn it into a college. As the American Revolution escalated, classes were suspended and the building was turned into a hospital for injured American troops, and later British troops. The college would never recover from the war. It would move to Salisbury, and Liberty Hall would reopen as a high school in Charlotte. More about Queen's College can be found at the next site. Head down Tryon towards Third St. for the next marker - the original site of Queen's College. You'll find a marker on the ground in front of Wells Fargo Plaza.
