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
was a flourishing school, and many men and women, found in the active places of

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.
