Haskell Indian Nations University (HINU) first opened its doors in 1884 as the United States Indian Industrial Training School. In 1890, the name of the school officially changed to Haskell Institute in honor of Dudley C. Haskell, the congressman instrumental in having the school built in Lawrence. Within 10 years, the school expanded to include secondary curriculum. Less than 30 years later the institution focused on senior-high programming, and in 1970 the institution received accreditation as a junior college. Now with many buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Haskell is a fascinating piece of Lawrence history.
