A Little College on a Hill

One evening in early November, 1927, Dr. Harry Hefner Price stood in the old Chapel Hall of Westminster College and addressed a convocation of students, alumni and friends of the institution. Westminster College sat atop a limestone bluff in Tehuacana, Texas, a town you have never heard of, and the old Chapel Hall was in a handsome three-story building made of stone quarried from that very hill.

I came upon this building quite by accident in the course a recent ramble, and was suitable astonished. It is not the sort of thing one expects to find upon turning a corner in a tiny and down-at-heels Texas town.
