From the Simon's Rock Webpage: About Simon's Rock College - History

Simon's Rock is the nation's only four-year college of the liberal arts and sciences specifically designed for younger scholars. Founded on the idea that many bright, highly motivated young people of 15 or 16 are ready to undertake serious college work, it was created through the extraordinary acts of philanthropy and vision of two women: Elizabeth Blodgett Hall and her mother, Margaret Kendrick Blodgett. Mrs. Blodgett gave the land which is now the college's main campus and established a foundation to support the construction and growth of a new educational institution on that property. Mrs. Hall had the vision to create the nation's first "early college," and committed the resources of the Blodgett Foundation to realizing her vision, building and sustaining Simon's Rock through its first decades.
