Franklin Pierce University Campus History: St. Peters - Security Building

Franklin Pierce University was founded in 1962 on the shores of Pearly Pond in Rindge, New Hampshire. This guide explores the growth of the campus over the past 50 years.


History of St. Peters

In 1990, the Security Dept., formerly located in the White House, was moved to St. Peters house on College Rd. (University Dr.)  The house was purchased from Blanche St. Peter, a friend of the college, and realtor, who also originally lived in the White House.  The house was renovated to serve as Security headquarters and a new Telecommunications Center.(Pierce Arrow, 9/6/90)

In 2000, a new vestibule and entranceway were constructed at St. Peters. A new roof was also installed.
