This photograph shows the Y.W.C.A (Young Woman's Christian Association) Hut. The Y. W. C. A. Hut was built in 1918 at the end of College Avenue by the entrance to Peabody Park. A small group of students, known as the Carpenterettes, helped build the Hut because of the manpower shortage created by World War I. The Hut was built in a bungalow style with a large central hall and open fireplaces. It was used for a variety of social functions. The Y. W. C. A. secretary counseled students in her office in the Hut. The building was razed in the 1940s when North Drive was built.
