About Our College
The main campus is in Godfrey, Illinois on the grounds of the former Monticello College, a women's seminary established in 1838. In 1970, the newly-established Lewis and Clark Community College District purchased the grounds, buildings and faculty. L&C began offering classes in 1970. Many of the original buildings are still used, and a gymnasium, math and science complex, nursing building and welding facility have been added since. The N.O. Nelson campus (named after N.O. Nelson, founder of the village of Leclaire, Illinois) is located in Edwardsville, Illinois.
