View from the Hill Posted on September 8th, 2011 by


This is a 1917 panoramic shot of the campus. Notice the students and teachers milling amongst the buildings. The buildings from left to right are:  Johnson Hall (women’s housing), President’s Residence (built by President Matthias Wahlstrom himself, it was called “The White House”), South Hall (originally a women’s dormitory, by now it was a music hall), School of Commerce Building, Old Main, Auditorium, and North Hall (a faculty residence).




  1. This is so neat to have older pictures like these. I can just imagine what Saint Peter looked like in those times nearly 100 years ago. Thanks!

    Woohoo! Loving this! Also, as I’m sure she checks this fairly regularly, Maggie is awesome. 🙂
