Written by Linden Hall’s Student Journalist, Emily K ‘25

Where are Linden Hall’s legacy and memories preserved? The answer lies in the third-floor halls of the academic building, in the school archives. The school has amassed an array of artifacts over hundreds of years, thanks to the generous donations of Linden Hall alumnae and community members. To aggregate these items in one location, Distinguished Alumna Joey Yocum ‘59 founded the Linden Hall archives. This extensive collection includes items such as yearbooks, photographs, invoices, event programs, and other artifacts that bridge the Linden Hall experience from past to present and celebrate student achievements and milestones.
