Each Ancient Classic Hall


Metzger College stood on North Hanover in Carlisle.  Metzger became part of the college in 1913 and housed women until 1961.  Metzger College was the first residence for women who attended Dickinson.  This site is currently occupied by a fast food restaurant, the old building having been sold and demolished.
