Albert Lear College, Albert Lea, Minnsota, also known as Albert Lea College for Women, was established by the Presbyterian Church in 1883 and opened in 1885 with an enrollment of51 women. The faculty was composed of Rev. R.V.Abbott, president, LauraWatson, principal, and teachers Katherine Hutchinson, Georgina Hodgkins,Helen Briggs nd Katherine Oliver. Due to financial problems the college closed in 1901, bu after securing funding, it re-opened in 1905. W.W. Cargill, the grain elevator magnate and J. J. Hill, founder of the Northern Pacific Railroad, were strong supporters and financial donors to the college. In 1910 the college had an enrollment of 125 students. Financial debt, rising costs and declining enrollment caused the college to close permanently in 1916. About 1922 the Cargill Science Hall was acquired by Abbott Public School, which ceased to operate in 1965. The property was eventually re-developed as Abbott Apartments.
