Centre College was founded by Presbyterian leaders, was chartered in 1819 and opened for business in the fall of 1820 in "Old Centre", the first building on campus and which is still in use today. In 1862, it served as a Civil War hospital during the battle of Perryville. In 1901, Central University in Richmond Kentucky was consolidated with Centre and the Kentucky College for Women merged with Centre in 1926. Today, Centre College is an accredited private four year liberal arts college and ranked 44th nationally in the 2007 US News & World Report list. The first postcard below is was produced by Curteich in the 1930s and shows the Main building.

The second post card was also produced by Curteich in 1933 and shows Morgan Hall, the Woman's Department of Centre College. Both of these postcards can be found in my Kentucky listings along with 10,000 more postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.
