    Class Graduation Stone

    by Yaqui Updated Jun 18, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This stone is really neat because on each side is dedicated to the graduating classes of 1883-1886. It must had a sundial or some statue that was located on it, but now it is gone sadley. Still a neat memorial to those first students of the college.

    Built in 1920 as a separate school to prepare ministers for the Methodist Protestant Church. It housed the seminary chapel, library, classrooms, offices, and dormitory rooms for the students on the upper two floors. The seminary was moved to DC, so the building was purchased by the college in the 1950's and it was turned into adminstration building.
