Bethany Hosts Ozark
Forty students and several professors
from Ozark Christian College, an Independent Christian Church-affiliated
college in Joplin, Missouri, visited Bethany College on Monday.
The biennial tour is part of the requirement
for their course on Restoration Origins taught by Professor
Terry Chaney. At Bethany they visited the Campbell Mansion,
God’s Acre (cemetery), ate lunch at the cafeteria, then
toured Old Main, the Archives, and the Old Meeting House.
While at the Archives, they enjoyed a reading by Archivist
Jeanne Cobb from an original diary by Alexander Campbell.
The students were impressed with the
beauty of Bethany College and the history that remains here
in its buildings and environs. Several remarked that being
able to visit the home and college of Mr. Campbell made their
textbooks come alive.

the staff of Historic Bethany with the Mansion tour.
