On moringside college campus sits the women's residence hall, constructed in 1926 for housing the increasing number of female students attending morningside college. The completed building boasts a gracious domestic environment, with a sun parlor and drawing room in each hall, the loggias, roof terrace, and decorative cast-iron balconies.
Finished just before the economic downturn of the late 1920s, the building ended up serving as faculty housing when student enrollments dropped, and the college found it more difficult to pay faculty.
In the late 1930's one wing served as housing for air force cadets. In 1946 the residence hall was renamed to honor Lillian E. Dimmitt, a classics professor at the college from 1893 to 1965. The building continues to serve as a residence hall for the majority of the first year students.|
The sighting at Dimmitt hall tend to be rather nonspecific. Ranging from encounters with mysterious young men in uniform, walking the halls at night appearing to freigtened female residence, only to vanish as quickly as they appear.
To personal belongings being upheaved by unseen hands. A few students that worked summer repair detail, relay a story of being drawn into an inner hallway by strange noises, only to have the only unlocked doorway slammed and barracaided behind them.
The door was blocked by piles of materesses moved from rooms to the hallway in seconds, as well as the large portait of l. Dittmit that usally hangs in the first floor parlor. .
