The Yeates Institute closes following disagreement

Miss Catherine Yeates, its founder, wanted to turn the school from a purely classical institute into a school focusing on theology as preparation for clergy. When the board decided that the funds could not be used for any purposes other than classical and academic instruction, the school was closed and the property sold. However, the board continued to meet.
