It is unclear exactly what the Bureau Society was, but the Ladoga Female Seminary was established in 1855 by the Baptists, and relatively soon after started to admit male students as well (due to financial issues). It appears that it was only open a short while, until 1869, and never was financially solvent.Ladoga, IN: Ladoga Female Seminary, October 29, 1860.
