Bryan College is a private co-educational Christian college located in Dayton, Tennessee. The college had its beginning when its namesake William Jennings Bryan, who was participating in the Scopes Trial, expressed his interest for a men's junior college in the city. Bryan died only five days after the conclusion of the Scopes Trial, and when a proposal was made to memorialize him in Dayton, it was suggested rather to start the college he had envisioned. The college opened in September 18, 1930, only five years after Bryan's death, in the old high school where the alleged teaching of evolution that had led to the trial had occurred. The college now has 10 buildings on a 110 acre campus. Like its namesake, it is dedicated to the principles of conservative Christianity.
