On this site stood Rose Cottage, "The Cradle of Gallaudet." Originally, it was the home of William Stickney, son-in-law of Amos Kendall. A large rose garden stood between the two men's houses so the Stickney House, with 10 rooms, became known as "Rose Cottage." From 1864 to 1866, it was the first Gallaudet University building. It was demolished when Chapel Hall was constructed from 1867 to 1871.
