Built in 1911 as the first girls dormitory on the campus of Washington State Normal School, Kamola Hall was constructed in a Spanish style of locally made bricks. The elegantly decorated hall was named Kamola, the daughter of the famous Kittitas Indian Chief Owhi. In 1915, an addition was built which could house 112 young women students. The hall is located on the north side of 8th Avenue between D and Walnut Streets. It was the third building constructed on the W.S.N.S. campus.Postcard titled: "No. 39 Girls Dormitory W.S.N.S.
