Congress had not then faith in Indian education, and after several years of disappointment, the boys from their earnings on farms contributed to erect the building $1,851.00, and the balance, $14,500.00 was donated by friends of the School. It has accommodations for 300 boys, with library, reading, assembly, bath and clothing rooms.

This image appears in United States Indian School Carlisle, Penna (Carlisle, PA: The School, [1895?]), p. 30.  No prints of this image have yet been located. 

Because no prints or negatives of this image have yet been found, we believe this photograph was probably taken by student photographer John Leslie.
