Education of children was a primary concern of settlers. Even before the Union School was established in Saline, the Lodi Academy was begun in 1847 north of town, in the Lodi Twp. This enterprise “proved to be of incalculable benefit to the youth of the vicinity…..and had great success; Lodi became famous for its school”. Graduates of the academy became adults of professional integrity. Unfortunately, old age caused Prof. Rufus Nutting to cease his efforts after about ten years. (Chapman, p. 1278)
