Moor's Charity School

Moor's Charity School was founded in 1754 in Lebanon, Connecticut, by the Puritan minister Eleazar Wheelock to provide education for Native Americans who desired to be missionaries to the native tribes. The school survived for only a fairly short time, as Connecticut was located far from Native American territories on the frontier of the British colonies in North America, and because Wheelock desired to expand the institution to include a school for Europeans. The institution was moved to New Hampshire in 1770, where it was re-established as Dartmouth College.
