Leland Stanford (albeit a very rich guy) converted his hobby farm into a school.
"The Stanfords and founding President David Starr Jordan aimed for their new university to be nonsectarian, co-educational and affordable, to produce cultured and useful graduates, and to teach both the traditional liberal arts and the technology and engineering that were already changing America." https://www.stanford.edu/about/history/
