The First College In Kansas

Erected this building and opened its door for instruction November 22, 1858

Werner Renick Davis, President

The trustees realizing their financial inability to construct a building to meet their dreams of the future requirements of the college, erected this building here as a temporary educational center rather than on the campus which had been already designated.
