Higher Education Institutions on the National Register of Historic Places

I downloaded a file earlier today with 90,000+ sites on the National Register of Historic Places.  The National Park Service includes urls in the file for the .pdfs of applications and photographs for those that have been scanned.

After a quick sort to identify 444 sites with "college" in their names, I opened the data as a Fusion table for geocoding and creation of the map below.  Some of the sites are for institutions that have closed, like the one for Gooding College in Idaho.  Click on a red icon to see a card with information for the site.  As always, your comments and suggestions are appreciated!!
