. . . 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.
