Regarding Carlisle Grove Seminary. The following story as presented by George Fidler, of Duanesburg, NY, whose father attended the Carlisle Grove Seminary, has
Apparently the teachers were housed on the main floor. The student quarters were upstairs. All the doors featured brass door knobs, and the boys thought it fun to take off the doorknobs and roll them over the floor into the girls’ dormitory. Professor Lansing, the school master, finally announced that the guilty ones, if caught, would be sent home. Student William Weaver hadn’t tried it yet, and thought he would, before it was too late. But, it was already too late. Mr. Lansing’s head appeared above the stairs at just the right moment to catch William red-handed. The young Mr. Weaver did not wait for the formal sentencing. He packed up his things, then and there, and left for home.
