Windsor Battlefield Tour

In 1840, Dr. Jeremiah Chamberlain, founder and president of Oakland College, reported on progress to Governor McNutt as follows:"We have 250 acres of land... and subscriptions to above $100,000, near one-half of which is due in the form of a permanent fund. Out buildings are a president's house, a professor's house, a steward's house and fifteen cottages for lodging students, calculated to contain from six to eight students each. The first story of a main building, 100 by 65 feet, is now raised, and the house shall be finished three stories high as soon as funds will warrant it."
