Shelby College 

No longer in existence, Shelby College operated at Shelbyville, Kentucky, with interruptions, from 1840 to around 1868. Bishop Benjamin B. Smith of Kentucky wanted a "Literary institution of an elevated character under the auspices of the Church in this Diocese." In 1840 the Diocese of Kentucky took charge of Shelby College, which was founded four years earlier. The Episcopal Theological Seminary in Kentucky operated as a department of Shelby College for a while in the 1840s.
