Hampden-Sydney is the parent institution of both the Medical College of Virginia and Union Theological Seminary (Presbyterian).
The granite marker and a matching one in the back yard of Thornton Place define a line on true north. They were probably erected in the late 1800s by James R. Thornton, 1871, professor of mathematics 1883-1911. It is unclear whether they marked an actual boundary or were simply an exercise in surveying skills.
