Sierra Madre College located on Columbia Hill, near south Orange Grove Avenue and Grand Avenue was opened on September 17th, 1884. Twenty-five pupils matriculated at the opening of Sierra Madre College and the start was deemed propitious. Efforts were made to obtain endowments and support, and it was hoped that the offers would surely come. Notwithstanding strenous endeavors to obtain financial support the college did not succeed in obtaining material aid and gave up the pedagogic ghost in the second year of its life. The sheriff facilitated this conclusion to ambitious effort, and the schoolhouse was sold to pay pressing obligations.
