Mills College, Oakland, CA
Mills began as a seminary school known as the Young Ladies’ Seminary. It was founded two years after California was admitted to statehood, and the same year the city of Oakland was established. At the time, Oakland was a bustling metropolis of about 10,000.
The University of California and Stanford hadn’t yet come into being, and miners, farmers, and merchants wanted to educate their daughters without risking the perilous journey to East Coast schools.
Over the years, the beautiful front entry to student housing unit Mary Morse Hall had seen its share of history, weather and wear (the Hall is reputed to have its very own ghost). Bob Donley, the College’s carpenter, asked Wooden Window to match the existing doors massive relief panels, while making them ADA complient.
