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 Aloha cottage was built in 1898 as a residence for the seminary's founders, John and Vesta Cassedy, and was later enlarged for use as a dormitory. It's name reflects the spirit with which they welcomes students into their home. The distinctive Porch of the Maidens with its row of caryatids, female figures used as columns, was added in the 1920s.
