Mysteries, First Set: Views of Seminary Hall, Northeastern State University

Architecture can create layers of mystery and depth in human life by recalling the past. Photography enhances that romance beautifully.

This group of photos feature Seminary Hall at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Tahlequah is located in the western foothills of the Ozark Mountains, and is the capital of both the Cherokee Nation and the United Keetowah Band of Cherokee Indians. The city gained that distinction after the Cherokee were forced from their homelands to the east onto Indian Territory in Oklahoma during the infamous Trail of Tears, so the place has a bittersweet quality. I have Cherokee ancestors on my father’s side of the family.

I thought these particular photos captured a delightful ghostly mood and that they make an interesting set. I hope you enjoy them!
