Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Gordon College Wenham Massachusetts
Gordon College has existed as a nondenominational Christian liberal arts institution on its current Wenham, Massachusetts campus since 1955. However, the college traces its origins back to 1889, when Baptist minister Reverend Adoniram Judson Gordon founded its predecessor, the Boston Missionary Training School. The college campus is presently home to more than 2,100 undergraduate and postgraduate students combined. This attractive green locale stretches over 450 acres and is charmingly set next to a pond. Formerly the mansion of investor Frederick H. Prince, the grand Frost Hall completed in 1911 now functions as the college s administrative center. And one of the site s more recent buildings is equally eye catching: the state of the art, red brick Ken Olsen Science Center, which was built to a design by Boston architects Payette and dedicated in 2008.
