Goddard Hall and Hersey Hall, Westbrook Seminary in a black and white photograph, showing the single story dining room that connected the two buildings from 1869 to the 1960s. During the junior college years formal dinners were held for the students and faculty from Monday through Thursday. A faculty member at the head of each table would introduce a pre-selected topic for discussion during the meal. As the student population grew in the 1950s and 1960s, the dining room became too small to accommodate all the students. There were then two sittings - first Seniors and then Freshmen.

The photograph also shows two students on the steps of Hersey Hall and two automobiles parked in the curve of the green
