Founders Hall, a Colonial Revival house completed in 1890,
accommodates sophomore students. Designed by the famed architectural
firm of Peabody & Stearns, Founders Hall once served as the main
residence for the Althorpe estate.
Built for John Thompson Spencer, a prominent Philadelphia lawyer, the
structure incorporates formal Georgian details with the informal
ambience of a seaside villa. Salve Regina acquired the property, located
on Ruggles Avenue, in 1964.
