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.
