Inscription.

Chillicothe was the home to the Chillicothe Business College from 1890 through the early 1950s. The College developed a campus on Chillicothe's northwest side and offered a variety of professional and occupational training programs for a student body of over 1,000. Graduates still fondly remember seeing advertisements that spanned from Missouri to California that calculated the number of miles to the CBC.
