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.

Seminary students belonged to sororities that held their meetings and social events in small, uniquely designed clubhouses. Eight sorority houses were built between 1896 and 1905, three of which are visible here. Starting on the left, the first house built was the American Bungalow in 1896 for Alpha Epsilon Pi. The Dutch Windmill was built in 1899 for Kappa Delta Phi. The Colonial House, built in 1903, was used as the clubhouse for Phi Delta Psi.
