Newcomb House

Stop 11 of 14 in the “Old Newcomb”: The First Two Newcomb College Campuses tour

After the completion of Josephine Louise House in 1895, Mrs. Newcomb attempted to live in the building with the students, but found that their chatter ill suited to her need for quiet.

She moved to Newcomb House, on 1225 Fourth Street in 1897.

After her death in 1901, Newcomb House became another residence for students.
