Blinn College was established in 1883 as Mission Institute by the Southern German Conference of the Methodist denomination. Shortly after its establishment, in 1889, the institute started to admit women, and in the following year, the name was changed to Blinn Memorial College. In 1927, a junior college was organised by the Board of Trustees, and 3 years after, Blinn merged with Southwestern University of Georgetown, Texas. In 1937, all connections with Southwestern University and the Methodist denominations were terminated. In that same year, Blinn became the first county-owned junior college district in Texas, after the Washington County levied a property tax for the creation of a public junior college district in Texas.Show more
