The settling of this rapdily developing southeast corner of the Iowa Territory involved monumental effort, so their goal of a literary institute was based on a clear vision and bold determiniation. And so, only eight years after the platting of this community, the Territorial Legislature granted a charter for the Mount Pleasant Literary Institute on February 17, 1842.
