Northwestern College is located on the site of a former preparatory seminary for boys and young men, known as Nazareth Hall. Built in the Lombardic Romanesque style of Northern Italy, Nazareth Hall was constructed to house most of the functions of the institution in one extremely large, multipart building. Northwestern College purchased the campus from the seminary in 1970, and thirty years later, the enrollment of the school has grown to over 2,600 students, with additional buildings constructed to accommodate the growing student population. The grant will allow the college to produce a comprehensive preservation plan for its historic buildings and landscapes to complement its campus master plan.

Northwestern College received a Getty grant in 2004 for $150,000 to support campus heritage planning.
