Robie Hall, named for Governor Frederick Robie, who contributed to its construction, was built in 1897. It was originally needed to house female students because the Seminary building had burned down in 1894. At this period, it was customary for male students to board in the town. Andrews Hall was constructed in 1916. It was called East Hall for forty years until in May 1956, it was named for Miriam E. Andrews. Ms. Andrews taught music at Gorham from 1922 to 1960. Robie-Andrews was extensively renovated in 1977.
