(13) Black Dwarf

Black Dwarf was used as a residence for faculty and married students. In 1948 the Frank Rice family, Nell Rice, and married students occupied the cottage.

When the college moved to Lake Eden, the attic was remodeled to add three rooms and two baths. Heating and insulation were installed.

2007: The building is used as a residence. Additions have been made.
