Knox College

Founded by abolitionists in 1837, Knox College is a nationally ranked, private, residential liberal arts college located in Galesburg, Illinois. Its Galesburg campus has approximately 1,200 students from 46 U.S. states and 46 countries enrolled in 48 different fields of study.

Knox College became a client of mapformation in March 2006, after approximately six months of discussions regarding potential projects. mapformation was hired to develop a very unique map of the campus area. Rather than creating a map of what is presently located on the property, our firm has been asked to develop a map of historic Galesburg as it appeared in 1858. Old photos of buildings that are no longer standing, as well as digital photos of a 1930s model of the area prior to the Civil War are being used to develop the map, which was completed in September 2006.
