Grand River College in its heyday

Gallatin was once a leader in education when Grand River College was among the first institutions to offer higher education opportunities to women in Missouri. This photo, shared by Sylvia Eads, verifies a great response to the “novel” idea. The 3-story brick building once stood in south Gallatin before it was consumed by fire in 1918.

The institution was originally chartered in 1851 as a private school located at Edinbergh

Will Grand River College return to Gallatin?

How much do you know about Grand River College? Perhaps knowing this local history might afford a glimpse at what could be in our future.

Grand River College was established in 1851 at Edinburg in neighboring Grundy County. It was among the first to admit women on equal terms with men. After 40 years, its college trustees approved changes and a new owner decided to relocate and enlarge the college

by Wilbur Bush

The April 30, 1953, "Gallatin Democrat" reported that the community wasn’t ready for a factory in regards to the Lambert Manufacturing Company wanting to build a plant in town. A checklist was published which asked citizens to give themselves a self-test. The test was supposed to help them decide whether the cap factory was suitable for Gallatin. The test included some of the following questions:
