A little over 103 years ago, Arkadelphia's Southern Standard newspaper's front-page headlines screamed, "College Building Destroyed by Fire." Sadly, Henderson-Brown College's largest structure had burned. The February 5, 1914, issue of the newspaper observed that "One of the most destructive fires with which our city was ever visited occurred early Tuesday morning when Henderson-Brown College was almost entirely consumed by the angry flames."
