The building at 134 Webster Street was originally the carriage house of the Rosevale Estate and was originally owned by George L. Rives. It was later owned by the Patykewich family, as Patykewich was the former groundskeeper of the estate, and then owned by Mary B.C. Dulles. It was purchased by Salve Regina University in 2001.
