Historical marker dedicated to college

Posted: Updated:

CREAL SPRINGS (WSIL) -- More than two dozen people attended a ceremony Saturday morning marking history in southern Illinois.

Creal Springs Seminary opened back in 1884 as a three-story frame building with a basement and attic.

The seminary was originally planned for female students but later became co-educational after a high demand from male students. 

It later was made into a Baptist Institution.

The Williamson County Historical Society worked with the great grandchildren of the original founders to dedicate a historical marker for the college on Saturday.

The college served as an important part of community life with its many activities and social functions.
