C.S. Lewis College

The man. The myth.

C.S. Lewis College

The following was sent to me from Stan Mattson at the C.S. Lewis Foundation:

At long last! It's difficult to believe, after so extended a journey, but the truth is, we are about to take a major step forward towards the long-awaited goal of establishing C.S. Lewis College.

It pleases me greatly to inform you that a news conference was held today in Northfield, Massachusetts announcing the purchase of the campus for the use of C.S. Lewis College by Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

Located in the greater Amherst area of northern Massachusetts, just east of the Connecticut River, the campus is the beautiful and historic former site of Dwight L. Moody's Northfield Seminary for Young Women (later, the Northfield Mount Hermon School). NMH recently consolidated their operations onto their Mount Hermon campus, located five miles away.

For details on this rather extraordinary development, including the press release, announcement videos, and photos of the campus, visit http://www.cslewiscollege.org.

We invite you to rejoice with us on this joyous occasion, taking place most appropriately in this Advent season.


The college I used to teach at was at one time considering this piece of property. If I remember correctly, D.L. Moody is buried on or near the campus. I also notice that the college link appears to be broken at this time. I'll let you know if I find a better link.

Dan - the link doesn't work because you included the period in the URL. Here it is: http://www.cslewiscollege.org/

Thanks Karen. The funny thing is the period was included in both the email and on the foundation website as well, so it seems you found the mistake that many missed.
