Miltonvale Wesleyan College 100 years. 1909-2009 Miltonvale Wesleyan Bible College was established in 1909.

We Marc and Josephine Huyghebaert want to personally thank Mrs. and Mr. Paul and Audrey Walker, for the donation of most of the year books we now can show here, we will put them to good use.

Starting in 1844 many attempts had been made by the by "the Wesleyan Connection" later called "Wesleyan Methodist Church", "to found educational institutions in the form of colleges, institutes, and seminaries as early as 1844 in Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas". "A denominational school became a reality largely through the direction of Rev. Silas W. Bond in 1909 at the little village of Miltonvale, Kansas, they proceeded to build both Miltonvale Wesleyan College and a conference campgrounds on adjoining sites. Great emphasis was placed on the student's life as stated by Rev. Bond in 1915".The Miltonvale Wesleyan College was merged in 1972, with the Bartlesville Wesleyan campus in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The Oklahoma campus is now known as Oklahoma Wesleyan University. One of the buildings is now owned by the High School for their gymnasium, All the other buildings are owned by the Huyghebaert's. One, the red brick building, is now "the Naturelle Practice" a natural wellness treatment center. An other is now "Resort Motel". It is the intention of the Huyghebaert's to use eventually all the buildings for useful purposes. One section they would like to dedicate to the history of the buildings, since they know there would definitely be enough tourism interested.  However they are looking for funds to be able to start some of the other projects, and to help Miltonvale grow again.
