Arcadia College

Arcadia College, located in Arcadia, Missouri, United States, was founded by Rev. J.C. Berryman in 1843. The institution was associated with the Methodist Episcopal Church. Berryman then sold the institution in 1858 and it closed in 1861. The buildings were used as hospital for Union soldiers before reverting to Berryman in 1863. He returned for a few years and tried to restart the institution. The college then went through several owners and a four story brick building was erected in 1870. Arcadia College closed in 1877. The building was acquired by Order of the Ursulines for Ursuline Academy/College. The school closed in 1971.
