House in the Pines is established

As part of his plan to change Wheaton from a seminary to college, President Cole writes to Gertrude Cornish, a former Wheaton teacher, suggesting that she open a private secondary school for girls in a large house just east of the Seminary.  The “House in the Pines” boarding school opens in the fall, offering secondary education and college preparatory programs, thus filling the role that Wheaton Seminary has played in local education.
