22-R Hidden Field

Architectural Description: 

Neo Colonial gambrel style home

Historical Narrative: 

One of five homes built in 1937 as faculty residences on this new street Hidden Field Rd. Neo-Colional styles designed by Perry, Shaw and Hepburn and funded by Edward Harkness. The homes however did not completely fit into the changing curriculum format of faculty host families to group student meetings. Later additions and renovations corrected these issues. The first faculty family to occupy this home were Mr. & Mrs. Wilbur J. Bender.
