The Santa Rosa Seminary was a young women's school located at First Presbyterian Church on the corner of Beaver Street and College Avenue in Santa Rosa, Calif. The school was founded by early Santa Rosa resident Martha Chase, who had moved from the East Coast in 1875; the school opened on Monday, August 7, 1876. Chase served as principal for many years and was active in church circles until she closed the school in 1896 for unspecified reasons. She went on to become a missionary at the Hoopa Indian reservation in Humboldt County and eventually retired to Los Angeles due to poor health, where she died at age 89 in January 1936. https://www.newspapers.com/image/276239023
