Midstate College is a private, for-profit college established in 1888 in downtown Peoria, Illinois. The present Midstate College is an extensively expanded version of its original form which traces its origins as far back as 1857. During this time, a commercial school was started in Peoria. This and other similar schools were combined in 1888 and named Brown’s Business College of Commerce after being purchased by G.W. Brown. It was eventually sold to Arline H. Bunch and Company and adapted the name Midstate College of Commerce. The present name was used in 1965. The college is located at 411 W. Northmoor Road, Peoria, Illinois.
