Hartman House (1983-present)

Hartman House, 1990

This house, located on West Louther Street, was built in 1890 and served as the home of Dickinson President James Henry Morgan for nearly fifty years.

In 1983, the most recent occupants of the house, John Hartman, class of 1932, and his wife Thora, donated it to the College, and the building in turn was given their name as a sign of appreciation.

After the donation, the house became the home of the Office of Alumni and Parent Associations, the first permanent home for this office in the College’s history. The addition of the adjacent house created the Hartman Alumni Center, which is used for formal and informal college gatherings as well as for hosting important guests of the College.
