Gordon College is a private, 4-year school located in Wenham, MA. Founded in 1889 by Adoniram Judson Gordon as Boston Missionary Training Institute, the school became Gordon Bible College in 1916 and in 1971 its name was changed again to Gordon College. The picturesque, tree-filled 450 acre campus features a blend of traditional collegiate gothic and modern architecture. Wenham, originally part of Salem, has a long and rich history. Settled in 1635, this former Algonquian area (whose peaceful, agriculturally-focused population was believed to have been ravaged by smallpox in the early 17th century) is a part of greater Boston which is just 25 miles to the south.
