Founded in 1833, the town of Oberlin, Ohio and its college were named in honor of John Frederick Oberlin. Oberlin was a pastor who served the Lutheran church in Alsace, France until his passing in 1826. The founders of the town in Ohio were inspired to name their new community after him after they read a biography on his life. This website was created by the people at Oberlin College to celebrate his legacy. Visitors can click on the image of Oberlin on the homepage to view items that he collected during his life, including maps, prints, silhouettes, and religious texts. Moving on, visitors can view lithographs and illustrations of Oberlin's original parish, the Ban de la Roche in Alsace.
