McDaniel College

300 Washington Ave, Chestertown, MD

McDaniel College, located in Westminster, Maryland, was founded in 1867 by Fayette R. Buell, when it was known as Western Maryland College. The school was founded after the end of the Civil War, and came into being through generous donations from J.T. Ward, a Methodist Minister and John Smith, president of the Western Maryland Railroad. Smith would become the first president of the board of trustees. The school offered admissions to students regardless of status, race, gender, nationality, or ethnicity, a policy that is maintained to this day. In 1974 the school removed any denominational ties, becoming a full liberal arts college. In 2002 the school changed its name to McDaniel College as the railroad company after which it was named had long ago merged with another company and others mistook the school as a branch of Maryland's public university.
