Description: 

After graduating from high school, Melisandre Backus is driven into town to attend "the Female Academy" (217). The Mansion simply mentions the institution, but when Linda Snopes attends it in The Town, the narrator describes it this way: "one of the last of those gentle and stubbornly fading anachronisms called Miss So-and-So's or The So-and-So Female Academy or Institute whose curriculum included deportment and china-painting, which continue to dot the South though the rest of the United States knows them no more."
