Summary

Significance: Aloha was constructed in 1898 as part of the school's first building campaign. It served as the Cassedy family residence and then became a dormitory for juniors. The original shingle-sided bungalow embodied the school's early quaint domestic character. Numerous adaptations and additions to the structure under Cassedy and, especially, Ament chronicled the school's expansion and its transformation into a far more ornamented and ostentatious campus.
