The Manitowoc Seminary Was instituted at the special desire of several friends of a practical and thorough education, living in this place. The plan was, to introduce such subjects as are taught in Higher Schools or Academics. The school was first opened after Mr. Augustes Wittman's arrival in 1854, in Mrs. Ricker's house, near the bridge, with the number of thirty scholars. After having been in operation about two years, three lots were purchased on Seventh street, and by means of a loan out of the school fund of the State, and the assistance of several citizens interested in the cause of education, a building was erected, 50 feet by 25, two stories high, which was styled "Manitowoc Seminary." The school was then removed there from its first location, and opened with an exhibition, in the presence of all its friends and patrons, October, 1856. Since that time, several of its scholars have entered into business, and proved to have received a suitable education. German scholars are instructed in their own language until they have acquired sufficient knowledge of the English to be instructed therein. The principal subjects of the plan of studies are: the German, English, and French languages, Geometry, Arithmetic, Geography, History, Reading, Writing, Natural History and Philosophy, (Zoology and Mineralogy in winter, and Botany in summer) Drawing, and Vocal and Instrumental music. The Principal is Mr. August Wittman, formerly of Newark, N.J.; where he superintended a like institution, to the highest satisfaction of his partrons in that place, and was called to this village for the same purpose. The building contains three rooms for instruction, and sufficient more to receive fifteen boarding scholars. The terms for tuition and board are $100 per annum. Music (except vocal) $40 extra.
