Notes / Description: 

The issue in question is the payment of real estate taxes from 1880-1885. The defendant claims that the years 1880-1882 are exempt because of an act by the General Assembly that states that prohibits collecting taxes from three years ago. Historical note: the property being assessed includes the Athenaeum: an all girls school in Columbia.
