Stonor/Drexel Halls

Stonor Hall and Drexel Hall are the former hennery and hen keeper's cottage for Catherine Lorillard Wolfe's sprawling Vinland estate. Stonor Hall houses the offices of Conferences and Events and Human Resources. The Office of International Programs, which coordinates study abroad experiences and provides support to international students, is located in Drexel Hall.

Designed by the famed architectural firm of Peabody & Stearns, these two shingle-style cottages - connected by a large wooden archway - were completed in 1885. Salve Regina acquired the buildings in 1962 and received a historic preservation award from the Newport Historical Society in 2003 for their exterior restoration.
