In 1830 the Reverend Luther Bingham, a pastor in the Congregationalist Church, established the Institute for Education. Local citizens in Marietta then created the Marietta Collegiate Institute and Western Teachers' Seminary, a non-denominational institution. In 1835, this college became known simply as Marietta College. Throughout its history, Marietta College has emphasized a commitment to a liberal arts education. The institution has desired to create a well-rounded student, knowledgeable in a wide variety of subjects.
Marietta was the first permanent settlement of the United States of America in the territory north and west of the Ohio River. Originally known as Adelphia, meaning "brotherhood," Marietta was the first settlement founded by the Ohio Company of Associates in the Northwest Territory in 1788. The company's investors renamed the community after Queen Marie Antoinette of France, in honor of France's contributions to the American victory in the American Revolution. The first settlers were led by Rufus Putnam, who was one of the Ohio Company's early investors.

Ohio State University, University Hall photographSave
Description: University Hall as seen from the west bank of the Olentangy River looking northwest.
The Ohio State University was established in 1870 as the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College, a land-grant university.
University Hall opened in September 1873 and it was the first building on the campus. In addition to being the first classroom building, it also housed the library, administrative offices, apartments for faculty, dormitory rooms for male students as well as a chapel. In 1968, due to lack of structural integrity, the building was deemed unsafe and everything was moved out of it. It was torn down in 1971. The new University Hall that was completed in 1976 stands in almost the same spot and was designed to look exactly like the original building on the outside. View on Ohio Memory.
