Wiestling Hall - Image #14446

Class of 1908 formal photo

The Class of 1908 at what was then known as the Pennsylvania State Forest Academy in Mont Alto shot its formal class photo in front of Wiestling Hall. The building, constructed in 1807, once served as a manor for Col. George Wiestling, one of the area's wealthiest iron masters. When this 1907 photo was developed, there appears to be an image of a human figure standing in the background (click on photo album to see close-up image), as if observing the men on horseback.
