A photo caption with the Nov. 16 "You Haven't Lived Here if You Haven't . . ." feature on Forest Glen Seminary incorrectly described the content of the Save Our Seminary tours. Visitors are no longer allowed inside the buildings. The next tour is Saturday at 1 p.m.

. . . Visited an Enchanted Forest

Sunday, November 16, 2003; Page C02

. . . visited Montgomery County's enchanted forest. You can walk alone among the mysterious pagoda, windmill and Swiss chalet that are tucked into the Forest Glen Annex of Walter Reed Army Medical Center, but you'll have a much more meaningful adventure if you tag along on a Save Our Seminary tour. Members will tell the story of the former resort hotel that became a prestigious girls' school before being taken over as a recovery spot for World War II soldiers.


The soaring interior of the ballroom is one of the highlights of the seminary tour. (Gerald Martineau -- The Washington Post)
