Summary: These two postcards show Wolfe Hall at the College of the Sisters of Bethany in Topeka, Kansas. The building, located at Ninth and Polk Streets, was completed in 1872 to provide a Episcopalian education to young women from kindergarten to their second year of college. For a number of years classes were taught in the college's main building until a decline in enrollment forced the school to close in 1928. Wolfe Hall was demolished in 1959.
