National Park Seminary

National Park Seminary was a resort hotel from 1887 to 1893, a school for young women from 1894 to 1942, and a U.S. Army medical facility from 1942 to 2004. It is now a unique residential community.

The classical style of the gymnasium, built in 1907, was reinforced by the addition of a columned porch in 1925. Its basketball court, tiled swimming pool, bowling alley, solarium, and nearby tennis courts, ball fields, and riding rings provided a recreational balance to the academic and social life of the seminary students. Later the gym served as therapy and entertainment for recuperating soldiers.
