Lenox College in Hopkinton, Iowa

We visited the campus of Lenox College in late June and found a very peaceful setting. The campus and building are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The institution opened in 1859 as Bowen Collegiate Institute; in 1884 became Lenox College; and from 1922 to 1944 it operated as a junior college. Link to site with information on other institutions that have closed, merged, or changed their names. The Delaware County Historical Museum is located on the campus.
