Moving to a building in this area in 1802, Davidson Academy became Davidson College in 1803 and Cumberland College in 1806. Lack of funds closed it in 1816; it reopened in 1822 and became the University of Nashville in 1826. One of its developments was Peabody College for Teachers, which went to its present location in 1911.
