Inaugurated in 1898 by the Rev Andrew Murray (SA History online) to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the founding of the college, named for a teacher of the Huguenot College, Miss Anna Cummings. The design was by an American architect. The building is far removed from the high-Victorian taste of the time, being executed in a more sober Scottish baronial style with Normandish influences, typical of the revivalist styling, with rusticated ashlar, regular fenestration and identical elongated facades each flanked by projecting towers, having a mansard roof with attic windows.
