Built in the 1820s, Augusta College claimed that it was "The First Established College of Methodism in the World." Its brief but turbulent era reflected our nation's own impending civil war conflict, with the rising anti-slavery sentiment eventually causing the Kentucky Legislature to revoke the college's charter in 1849. In 1852, a fire destroyed Augusta College. In 2017, one of the original college structures, the former dormitory known as "Echo Hall," was just days from demolition when a community-based preservation group quickly organized to step in and save it. Known as the Augusta College Echo Hall Association (ACEHA), this group has successfully purchased this important piece of Augusta's heritage and is presently raising funds to renovate the structure so that it may once again serve the community. To learn more about Echo Hall and Augusta College or to make a donation, visit www.saveechohall.com.
