Description 

Constructed 1750-52, this large Georgian structure was the first of Yale's brick buildings and for many years probably the handsomest building in the colony. The only pre-Revolutionary building on the campus, this is the lone survivor of "Brick Row," a group of Georgian-style buildings built before 1820 and razed after the Civil War. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 21, 1965
