Stay in a Treasured Nashville Historic Site

Scarritt Bennett Center's history dates back to the late 19th century, when we were first established as the Scarritt College for Christian Workers. Scarritt College trained young women missionaries in a time when women were still prohibited from many forms of leadership across denominations of the church.

In 1952, Scarritt College became one of the first white, private colleges in the state of Tennessee to integrate and in April of 1957, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. famously visited the college and preached in our historic Wightman Chapel. Scarritt College eventually became co-ed and operated until 1988, when it closed and became Scarritt Bennett Center.

Guests to our campus can stay in one of our three historic residence halls. Our rooms are "suite-style". Suites include two sleeping rooms, most with twin-sized beds, adjoined by a full bathroom with a tub/shower combo. Each suite is equipped with one TV with streaming capabilities, a mini-fridge with a freezer, a microwave, and a dual drip coffee maker/Keurig.

Our campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We're located on Music Row, a block from Vanderbilt University, and minutes from Belmont, Lipscomb, Hillsboro Village, 12S, Midtown, Honky Tonk Row, and more.
