Logansport, IN Colleges in the Late 1800's

The Cass County Historical Society offers a very nice video history of several institutions that operated in Logansport, IN in the late 1800's.  The video initially focuses on Smithson College [1872-1878] and the large impressive building constructed on a hill overlooking the town.  The site was vacant for a time before use by American Normal College from 1883-1888.  It was vacant again before the opening of Michael's Business College in 1895.  A fire destroyed the building within a year and Michael's closed.
