OUR HISTORY

The history of Fountain Place is a rich one, having housed six past Ithaca College Presidents. The property was designed by Cornell University-trained architect William Henry Miller, a nationally recognized architect who designed many of Ithaca's most distinguished buildings. The home features Victorian-era details and was built in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Up until its transition to your home-away-from-home, Fountain Place was the oldest Ithaca College building still being utilized by the university and purchased by the college in 1938.

 

The property encompasses over 9,000 sq. ft. of living space, including seven luxurious bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as the landmark Carriage House building, which includes three private and cozy bedrooms. The Carriage House previously served as a nursing school in 1943 and later became guest housing for Ithaca College.
