MORRIN CENTER THE COLLEGE - Morrin College was old Quebec city’s first English-language institute of higher education. Classes were held from 1862 to 1902 when it was closed. Over that time there were 300 students, which amounted to about 14 per year.
TEACHING ENGLISH - One thing that made Morrin College unique is that in 1868 English was taught in this French-speaking city.

CHEMISTRY LAB - in this one room that was preserved from the time Morrin was a college, it had the original blackboard, a periodic table from the time, and a collection of old books. The OLDEST BOOK was from 1524! One corner of the lab also had a large wooden box, about the size of an outhouse, where students developed film.
GHOSTLY ENERGY - As you know if you read this blog, we can sense ghosts, spirits, or residual energy from events that happened in the past (it's like an emotional thumbprint that shows up again whenever there are people around to provide emotional energy). It was residual energy that I (Rob) sensed on the stairway going up to the Chemistry room.

TODAY'S USE OF ONE COLLEGE ROOM - There was also a ballroom that was used for the college, and that room is now rented out for weddings, parties and concerts.
