In 1845 the missions board began construction of a building to house and educate the children of the Iowa and Sac & Fox tribes. Much larger than it is now, the mission was originally 106 feet long and contained 32 rooms, including a dining hall and chapel. The first floor was built of native limestone quarried from the area. Locally made brick was used for the upper floors.

[Inset photo caption reads] This rendering of the Highland Presbyterian Mission shows what the building looked like when it was built in 1845.
