Hope College

Hope College American History Disasters Nineteenth Century Life Tragedies and Triumphs

Hope College was formed in 1866, five years before the great fire consumed about 80% of Holland (its host town) in October, 1871. 

Then, the Hope College campus seemed to be a bit removed from town.  Today, it is a thriving part of Holland's community.
