Gate, Hillside, & Holiday House

Excerpt from Building A College: An Architectural History of Berea College[1]

-------------------------------------------------------------------

 
 

Gate Cottage

Gate Cottage was originally built beside Rustic Cottage and served as one of the Campus' administration  buildings,  but was later moved to a site opposite the College barns on Walnut Meadow Pike. It was then used by the superintendent of the farm dairy and as a rental property (PCM, November 12, 1917). This house served as staff rental housing until 1963 when it was razed.

 

Hillside Cottage

This  structure was  purchased  by the  College, left where it had been built on the east side of the Christian Church, Chestnut Street, and was used as a residence for faculty and staff It was razed in 1960 ( Berea Citizen, December  1, 1960, 1).

Holiday House

The E. C. Holliday house, which was built on Center Street across from the future site of Kentucky Hall, was purchased by the College, moved toward the cemetery and used as faculty housing (Frost Diary, Aug., 1918). This house must have been razed during the 1950s, but no date has been recorded.
