Secret Societies

Wolfs Head

Skull & Bones

We toured the Yale campus with Teresa when we were here in July, so we didn’t want to do it again.  This time we went with a different perspective.  We looked for the Secret Societies buildings that are here.  Teresa helped us find four or five of them.  They sound so mysterious and sinister, but in reality they are just clubs.

Book & Snake

Scroll & Key

You can tell when you find one because they have no windows!  Where there may have been windows in the past is now bricked over.  This is in an effort to keep affairs, membership rolls, signs of recognition, initiation, or other aspects secret from the public.

While walking thru campus we came upon a group of students playing Quiddich…as in the game played in the Harry Potter series.  I’ve never seen this before and thought it was quite amusing.  Notice a few of them are riding brooms.

Harkness Tower

I love seeing all the architecture at Yale…it’s a very old place, with lots of history.

Grove Street Cemetery

“The Dead Shall Be Raised”

We also went into the Grove Street Cemetery to see who was home.  There is supposed to be many rich and famous people buried here.  We did find Eli Whitney and Noah Webster.  Charles Goodyear is here somewhere too, but we didn’t find him.
