Linden Hall is an independent boarding school and day for girls in grades 6-12 located in Lititz, Pennsylvania. The school was founded in 1746 and is the oldest girls' boarding and day school in continuous operation in the United States.[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 could construct a school.[5]
