Our history is anything but boring! The famous poster collection that adorns our walls reads like graffiti: Toni Morrison, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Grace Paley, Patricia Smith, and Junot Díaz were here.
The Rose O’Neill House was founded in 1970. “Richmond House,” as it was then known, remained in its original structure until 1982.
Three years later, the Bell House across campus was acquired thanks in part to the generosity of Mrs. Betty Brown Casey ’47 and her husband Eugene B. Casey. The House was renamed in honor of Eugene Casey’s mother, Rose O’Neill Casey.
