Made for postcard. The building was built in 1856 to house the Oxford Female College and, from 1867, as the Oxford Hotel. The Retreat was run by Dr. Harvey Cook, for whom Cook Field is named. It served as an asylum for drug addicts and patients with nervous and mental disorders from 1882 until it's purchase by Miami in 1925. The building was renamed Fisher Hall in 1927 and served mainly as a dormitory, site for the Miami University Theatre and storage facility until its demolition in 1978.
