Founded in 1883, Belhaven University began as a women’s college by Dr. Lewis Fitzhugh. Fire destroyed the main building in 1895, and another fire broke out in 1910. After the second fire, the title to the college was donated to the Presbyterian Church, and the private, liberal arts school began a religious affiliation. In 2010, Belhaven College became Belhaven University.
