Building History

Alexander Hall was the first building on the new Seattle Seminary Campus, built on 5 acres of land donated by Nils B. Peterson, a local resident. John Parkinson completed the design of this Richardsonian Romanesque college building just before he relocated to Los Angeles, CA, during the Depression of 1893.
