The University was founded in 1740 by Benjamin Franklin as a charitable school. At the conclusion of the Revolution a new charter was given by the State and the present title was assumed in 1791. In 1875 the university was moved to the present extensive grounds west of the Schuylkill River, where some 30 buildings have been erected and are constantly increased
