Farewell, Lombard College.
Universalist history in the news! A column in the Galesburg, Illinois, Register-Mail says that the last architectural remnant of the Universalists' Lombard College may soon be demolished. Lombard was founded in the early 1850s, but the properties were sold to the Galesburg School District in 1930 and the college's Divinity School merged with the Unitarian Meadville Seminary. Hence the name of the contemporary Unitarian-Universalist seminary in Chicago, Meadville Lombard Theological School. The last building from the Universalist college days is the two-story brick gymnasium, built in 1897.
