Fantastic picture. I was there 1970 - 71 for my first year at Notre Dame. The big bay windows on the ground floor where at that time in the Salle (Hall). There was lots of heavily carved wood in that room. They overlooked lawns, sloping away from the building. It was a beautiful place,

I was here 1969-1970 for my first year at Notre Dame and I loved it .It was set back of the road and was surrounded by trees where we made dens to play in at break and dinner times .

I was at the Hollies in 1962-63 for my 1st year at Notre Dame, we were very lucky to go to school in such a beautiful place.

I went to The Hollies from 1964-67 along with my sister Sharon, teachers I remember Miss Boardman and Miss Hawkins. Fabulous building remember sitting in "la Salle" in carved wooden seats.
