Mount Holyoke Girls Seminary
Vilayet of Bitlis/Paghesh
The original two-story building with four rooms underwent three additions.

The crowds here have gathered around and on the roof of the newly enlarged building for a dedication ceremony.

The grounds remain a construction site. Cut stone amassed inside the wall and stone yet uncut outside the wall will be used to put up another facility on the missionary compound.
