6 Library Square / Boynton House/ Barrow's House

The house at 6 Library Square was purchased in 1922 for use as a dormitory. Also known as the Boynton House, it was used as a residence for male staff for some time, and then for about 30 students until 1927, when the students were transferred to the newly opened French house, La Maison Blanche (White House). In 1927, Barrows House was converted into faculty housing.

This house was named for Edwin Barrows, Trustee from 1865 to 1908, and Treasurer from 1891 to 1908. Edwin's father Albert Barrows had been a Trustee from 1845 to 1853.
