The 1870 campus engraving of Westbrook Seminary by Russell Richardson was used in catalogs and in newspaper and other advertisements. It shows the First Universalist Church of Westbrook (later All Souls), Goddard Hall, the Dining Hall, Hersey Hall, and the Seminary Building with chapel and assembly hall on the back.

Hersey Hall opened in 1869 and was named after Samuel F. Hersey, a Bangor timber baron and seminary trustee. Its upper three floors housed female students and faculty, with offices and classrooms below. It was fitted with steam heat and bathing rooms.
