Lux in Tenebris

Main Marker:
Built by Rev. William Tennent c. 1735, it was the first academy in America for the training of Presbyterian ministers and the first college in Pa. A number of notable revivalist preachers and educators graduated from this rustic school before it closed upon Tennent's death in 1746. Soon after, several Log College graduates helped establish Princeton University in New Jersey. Many other colleges trace their roots to this early institution.

Stone Marker:
Organized by William Tennant 1727
Here, in the life of a pioneer teacher, sound learning, endued with spiritual passion, wrought to vitalize knowledge, glorify truth, enrich life, and in due time, call forth, to the glory of God and the welfare of American youth, these worthy Christian colleges.
