Originally known as Allanbank, Tupper Hall was designed by Guy Lowell and built in 1905-1906 as a summer home for Mr. and Mrs. Bryce J. Allan. The property included the main house and the stable. Mr. Allan was the son of Sir Hugh Allan, founder and president of the Allan Lines Shipping Company and the Canadian Pacific Ocean Services Ltd. Endicott College purchased the property in 1943 after the death of Mrs. Anna Allan.

The house has been used as a residence hall and home for the Hospitality and Tourism Administration program. Currently it is part of the Endicott College Conference Center.
