Jamestown College is a private liberal arts college founded by the Presbyterian Church in 1883. It closed in the 1893 economic depression, but after reopening in 1909, the college became notable for its science, nursing, and vocal music programs. Architecturally, the campus is unified by faithful renditions of Collegiate Gothic, and by late-twentieth-century buildings that are subdued and compatible with the historic architecture.
