Landis House (1968-present)

Landis House, 1968

The College acquired Landis House, the former home of Merkel and Mary Lamberton Landis, on January 25, 1968, at a cost of $26,000. The house is located on the southeast corner of Pomfret and College Streets, across from the Benjamin Rush Campus. Since its purchase, the Landis House has served Dickinson College in various capacities, including being the home of the economics department and the first residence of the Community Studies Center. In 2010 the building was renovated and became the location of the Women's Center, the Office of Diversity Initiatives, the Conflict Resolution Center, and the Rape Advocate's office.
