Who is Davis & Elkins College?


Davis & Elkins College was established through the influence and efforts of Henry Gassaway Davis and Stephen Benton Elkins, two United States Senators who were responsible for building the first railroad into the area. In 1901, the Senators donated land and money to establish a college and academy associated with the Presbyterian Church. The first classes were held on September 21, 1904. Since its move to the old “Halliehurst Farm,” the physical plant of Davis & Elkins has expanded to include 22 major buildings on a 170-acre campus. From the beginning, Davis & Elkins College has sought to be of service to its students, and through them to the state, the nation, and the world – meeting the needs of each generation to the best of its ability.
