Inscription
The University of Arkansas came into being under the Morrell Land-Grant College Act of 1862, through which federal land sales established colleges devoted to "agriculture and mechanic arts," scientific and classical studies, and military tactics for the "liberal and practical education of the industrial classes." It also satisfied the provision in the Arkansas Constitution of 1868 that the General Assembly "establish and maintain a State University." Fayetteville and Washington County raised $130,000 for the new college, which held its first classes January 22, 1872, on the William McIlroy farmstead, a location described as "second to none in the State of Arkansas."
