State Street Buildings

-A A +A
Various dates

The Heritage House, at 25 State Street (southwest corner of State and South Mineral streets), is one of the most recent additions to the campus. A chaste, Neo-Regency brick building that serves as the alumni house, it has an extremely attenuated, two-story, semicircular portico with delicate Adamesque details. State Street, which serves as the southern boundary of the campus, contains a phenomenal collection of faculty bungalows. Some are brick, some are frame, and some are shingle. Almost all are one and one-half stories, but few, if any, are alike. They demonstrate the many variations possible within a basic bungalow framework.
