This Georgian Revival mansion, built as a private residence but acquired by the college in 1983, was inspired by Tidewater Virginia plantation houses. The dormered hipped roof of the main block, flanked by tall chimneys, recalls eighteenth-century precedents, but the side wing housing garage and servants' quarters is obviously a product of the twentieth.
