Linden Hall Seminary, 1877, Overview

THIS Institution for the education of young ladies was founded in the year 1794, and is the property of the Synod of the Northern Province of the Moravian Church in the United States.

The Seminary was not established, and is not now conducted, for purposes of gain, but as a means of Christian usefulness among the young.
