Campus Expansion

Campus Expansion

The addition of new teaching and learning and residential spaces on the Miss Hall’s campus began on July 8, 2015. The residential building, which opened in August 2016, provides dormitory rooms for thirty students and includes study spaces, indoor and outdoor common areas, and two faculty apartments. The new academic building, named Linn Hall, accommodates the Mathematics and Science Departments, as well as Horizons, and opened in November 2016. The Miss Hall's community dedicated the buildings with a celebration on September 30, 2016.

These photos provide a glimpse of the initial plan for the new spaces and how they may fit the MHS campus, echoing the elegance, balance, and symmetry expressed in our local version of Georgian architecture and honoring the timeless character of our Main Building. These plans were altered slightly during the building process.
