College Buildings Destroyed by Fire

Ruskin College Destroyed by FireRuskin College was a central feature of the community. The college buildings were erected from locally available timber.

In 1918 fire destroyed many of the college buildings except the President's House and the Arts Building.

World War One and a changing economy outside of Ruskin drew many students away from the college.

In August 1919 Dr. Miller died, which sealed the fate of the college to never reopen.
