HART HALL
1910

Built in 1910 on the site of the former Lingley Hall, Hart Hall was part of the Mount Allison Ladies' College and the School for Girls. The four-storey stone building, designed by Edmund Burke, housed dormitory rooms, a gymnasium, a swimming pool, classrooms and an apartment for the College Principal.

Extensively renovated in 1983-84 it today houses a variety of academic apartments making it the oldest academic building on campus still in use.

Hart Hall is reputed to be haunted by the ghost of Ethel Peake (1875-1954) a voice teacher at Mount Allison and a well-known "character."
