  (4) Stone Cottage

Internal Link
Stone Cottage 2007

Stone Cottage was used primarily for faculty housing although at times students also lived there. It was the one winterized building and probably was intended for a caretaker.

Among those who resided there were the harpsichordist Erwin Bodky, his wife Lilli, and their daughter Angelica; architect Larry Kocher, his wife Margaret and their children Sandra and Larry; and the chemist Fritz Hansgirg and his wife Maria.

2007: The house is used for camp administration.
