    History

    "Thorp Springs is a historic school site. In the year 1873 when the country was new and sparsely settled, when educational facilities were limited, Add-Ran College was established here by Uncle Joe Clark and his sons, Addison and Randolph Clark.

    It was a flourishing school, and many men and women, found in the active places of life to today, were its students; and obtained an education, in part at least, at this place. They have sacred memories of the hills and vales, of the beautiful surrounding of Thorp Springs, clustered with the remembrance of association and school work here.

    At a meeting held here, March 1, 1910, the Trustees of Add-Ran Jarvis College, formally transfered the property to a new board of trustees. This transfer placed the property where it can never be diverted from its proper use, or fall into the hands of those who have digressed from the truth. The charter provisions guarantee this."
