In 1910 Dr. George Miller founded a Ruskin College here in what would later become the community of Ruskin. It was based on the principle of combining intellectual endeavors with manual labor, based on the philosophy of Victorian Englishman John Ruskin who fiercely attacked the worst aspects of industrialization, and actively promoted art education and museums for the working classes. Although the school closed during World War I, cooperative governance of Ruskin continued many years under the Commongood Society.
