Maintaining Christianity and Perpetuating Liberty
By faith we mean the essentials of the Christian faith and religion.
By freedom we mean the prevalence of civil and religious liberty.
Thus, The Blake Center is dedicated to maintaining the Christian faith by precept and example and perpetuating the inestimable blessings that result from freedom.
Opened in 2020, the Blake Center is named in honor of S. Prestley and Helen Blake, who donated the property to Hillsdale in 2019. The crown jewel of the property is a replica of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, which features the Jefferson Library, a collection of rare and antique books according to the same system Jefferson would have used in his own Monticello.
