St. Paul's College (NY)


An article from the New York Times on October 21, 2011 focuses on College Point, New York....a place name linked to an institution that closed over one hundred fifty years ago.  Can anyone offer other examples of place names linked to former college??

St. Paul's College was founded by William Augustus Muhlenberg (1796–1877) is considered to be the father of the Episcopal Church School Movement in the U.S.  The institution was opened in 1838 and closed by 1850.
