President's House (Bldg. E1)

-A A +A
Bldg. E1
1916, William Welles Bosworth. 111 Memorial Dr.

A symmetrically curved driveway imparts a graceful note to the two-story stone structure. Four fluted Corinthian pilasters divide the building's tripartite main body, whose reception rooms are clearly distinguished by the generous proportions on the ground floor. A single entablature marks the height of the classical building, with its slightly projecting entry facade. Tennis courts adjoin the house.
