This Day in Georgia History

December 18, 1834

Methodist School Chartered

Gov. Wilson Lumpkin signed an act chartering the Georgia Methodists Conference Manual Labor School, which would be located at Oxford, Georgia. Two years later, the school would gain a new charter as Emory College. In 1915 it changed its name to Emory University and in 1919 the campus was relocated in Atlanta, Georgia.
