BRIMFIELD. Founded by Episcopal Bishop Philander Chase in 1839, Jubilee College was one of the state's first institutes of higher living, but it closed in 1862 after a string of unfortunate circumstances, culminating in the bishop's death. Untouched for almost 70 years, the near-100-acre campus was turned over to the state for preservation and later increased to over 3000 acres. Today, visitors enjoy its natural beauty, from dramatic formations of exposed bedrock to babbling Jubilee Creek. In addition, the old college building (placed on the National Historic Register in 1972) has been restored to its original stateliness. Hunting, fishing, and camping are permitted in designated areas.
