Closing Services at Brethren Service Center: Site was home to several colleges

The Carroll County Times published an article by Kevin Dayhoff, "Brethren Service Center in New Windsor holds closing worship service," on April 30, 2017.  Dayhoff reports on the closing of the Brethren Service Center in New Windsor, MD and he provides a short historical sketch of the campus that was home to several colleges from 1843-1942 [New Windsor College (Presbyterian), Calvert College (Catholic), and Blue Ridge College (Church of the Brethren)].

The Brethren have used the site to operate their various disaster relief efforts and will be consolidating those programs at another location in New Windsor.  Dayhoff indicates the site has been purchased by Shanghai Yulun Education Group that plans to operate a preparatory academy.
