Franklin Pierce College is a four-year liberal-arts college in rural Rindge, New Hampshire, founded in 1962 and named after Franklin Pierce, the New Hampshire-born 14th President of the United States. The college has an enrollment of 1,608 [1] students, and is located at the foot of Mount Monadnock, overlooking Pearly Pond. The area was bought in 1854 by sea Captain Asa Brewer. Rindge tradition has it that the estate was a stop in the Underground Railroad. In the past the land has also been owned by a wealthy horse enthusiast, the Boy Scouts of America, and silent movie actress Alma Monaco. The campus today is composed of about 1,200 acres.
