"This is the site of the former Baxter Seminary, operated by the Methodist Episcopal Church, 1910-1959. J. Daniel Harris led the drive for the secondary school; it's first President was Samuel E. Ryan. Under Harry L. Upperman it attained an enrollment near 400 and a quality academic and vocational curriculum, stressing Christian principles and offering a self-help program for deserving students."
