From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    dwellings, the name given to the prophetical college established
    by Samuel near Ramah. It consisted of a cluster of separate
    dwellings, and hence its name. David took refuge here when he
    fled from Saul (1 Sam. 19:18, 19, 22, 23), and here he passed a
    few weeks in peace (comp. Ps. 11). It was probably the common
    residence of the "sons of the prophets."

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)
