Johnston House

Dates: Built circa 1883. Acquired by College in 1961. Student
Housing, 1977-1987. Building remodeled for administrative offices in 1992.

Quote: As a second grade teacher, she [Julia Johnston] was greatly
beloved by all of the children. However, I hated going to her home on Saturday
morning to recite the shorter catechism. Remember Davidson was a very
Calvinistic Presbyterian community in the 1920s. Children were required to
learn the answer to questions like: ‘WHAT IS SIN?’ Dyer, Goudyloch Erwin.
“Growing Up In Davidson” Speech. 30 April 1992. DC0142s. Dyer,

Named for: Miss Julia Johnston, second grade teacher.
