Linden Hall is an independent day and boarding school for girls in grades 6-12 located in Lititz, Pennsylvania. The school was founded in 1746 and is the oldest girls' boarding/day school in the US.[1][2][3][4]

History[edit]

In November 1746, the Moravian church established a settlement in Warwick, PA, now known as Lititz, PA where the community broke ground on a Gemeinhaus that housed a school.[5]
