Maine Wesleyan Seminary and Female College    Kents Hill    Maine    1825    
    
    A split in the New England Conference occurred in 1824 when the General Conference created the Maine Annual Conference to cover the newly formed State of Maine.  In September 1825, through the generosity of a Kent's Hill farmer named Luther Sampson, the Maine Wesleyan Seminary opened, being a merger with a small, private boarding school established in 1820 by Elihu and Emma Robinson in Augusta.  In 1828, following the example of Wesleyan Academy, the seminary opened a department for young women, called the Maine Wesleyan Seminary and Female College, becoming known as Kent's Hill School in the early 1900s.  The Methodist affiliation was dropped in the 1950s, but the school survives    www.bu.edu/sth/archives/cah/trails.htm
