Sheldon Jackson Museum

Sheldon Jackson College ( SJC ) was a small private college located on Baranof Island in Sitka , Alaska , United States . Founded in 1878, it was the oldest institution of higher learning in Alaska and maintained a historic relationship with the Presbyterian Church . The college was named in honor of Rev.

Due to declining enrollment, the college closed in 2007; four years later, ownership of its campus was transferred to the organization behind the Sitka Fine Arts Camp . In addition to the fine arts camp, the Sheldon Jackson Museum, the Sitka Sound Science Center , the Sitka Summer Music Festival , the Sitka International Hostel, Outer Coast College , and several other organizations are located in buildings on the campus of the former school.
