This building was originally designed for Rodolphe Louis and Maria Agassiz by the Boston firm of Bigelow, Wadsworth, Hubbard and Smith in 1928. Louis Agassiz was the grandson of Jean Louis Rodolphe Agassiz, founder and first director of the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard Museum and the son of Alexander Agassiz, the second curator and director of the museum. His grandfather's second wife was Elizabeth C. Cary, one of the founders of Radcliffe College. Endicott College purchased the property in 2003 from R. L. Agassiz's grandson Cornelius Conway Felton. The property is now the Center for Research and Development at Endicott College.
