    GROUNDS

    The grounds are ample, consisting of a site of about twenty acres, a large portion of which is covered with shade, ornamental, and fruit trees. They are also high, overlooking the entire city, and affording a fine view of the landscape for miles around.HBH 11a.2

    The soil is of such a nature that mud is almost entirely unknown, a few hours of sunshine after a rain rendering the walks and roads in and about the grounds so free from dampness that the most delicate invalid may indulge freely in the benefits of out-of-door life and exercise.HBH 11a.3

    In front of the main building, and between it and the road, is a beautiful grove, which extends along the street in each direction from it, some thirty rods, affording a delightful place of resort during the summer months. The grove is also provided with such means of exercise and recreation as are both healthful and entertaining; as croquet grounds, conveniences for gymnastic exercises, etc.HBH 11a.4
