When the first students of Park College arrived in April, 1875, they found a “Godforsaken” place. What had been a thriving river town of wharves and warehouses, farmers and mer¬ chants, was in ruins. Many buildings were fall¬ ing down, and the streets were deep with mud. A bullet-riddled safe lay on its side in the middle of town, courtesy of the James gang. Only the saloons were prospering. Yet, if it had not been for the Civil War, Parkville would have become a great city. Founded by- George Park in 1839, it grew spectacularly until 1855, the year abolitionist Park ' s battles with border pro-slavers began. For nearly 20 years they fought. And when it was all over, the dream of an empire lay buried beneath the debris of war. Finally forced to leave Missouri, Park donated 1300 acres to the Presbyterian Church. Thus in 1875, the Rev. John McAfee and 17 students set up school in the abandoned Missouri Valley Hotel (page 3). 5
