The Presidentís House: A brief history of the Wilcox-Mills House. “Prior to the College acquiring the Wilcox-Mills House, one of the major additions to the property included the street wall and curved iron railing along the Putnam Street entrance. Both were designed by Rufus Erastus Harte, who was architect of Erwin Hall. The Presidentís House was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 13, 1973, which lists Count de Grasse Bonney as the designer of the original 1822 structure.” (Submitted on May 16, 2017.)
