Franklin Pierce University Campus History: Lakeside Education Center

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 Lakeside Education Center

In October, 29, 1997, a Pierce Arrow article mentions that the lake shore has been a focus of ghost sightings and paranormal activity. Reportedly, the "lady of the lake" emerges from the mist and fog to meet "lonely walkers."

The Lakeside Education Center was created in 2004. It adds a multi-purpose meeting or teaching space next to the boathouse.
