May 09, 1842 - Randolph Seminary Established
Before the Randolph Seminary opened in 1842, the schools of Randolph County consisted of schools run by the Society of Friends or Subscription Schools.
Subscription Schools
During this era, parents that wanted their children to attend these schools paid a subscription for their children to attend. A typical price for the school was seventy-five cents per quarter. The schoolmaster might take his pay in wheat, corn or other commodity.
The Randolph County Seminary became one of the best schools of its type in the state.

Indiana possesses a rich history that is fun to read and learn. This Hoosier Dusty Files is in an easy to read “this day in history format” and includes articles from the author's A Year in Indiana History series. Visitors may read the articles as they appear or purchase the book:
