Section Outline

(5) North Lodge

North Lodge was the women’s dorm. From the porch one entered into a two-story lobby which was used for lectures, classes, and social gatherings.

On either side of the lobby were entrances to two corridors off of which there were bedrooms and bathrooms.

Steps on either side of the lobby led to second story rooms, each of which housed eight to ten students.
2007: North Lodge is used by Camp Rockmont as sleeping space for campers. The building joining the two lodges was added by Camp Rockmont.
