I visited this house on a very rainy day, thus the darkness of the photos. I hope to return sometime on a more sunny day.
Higgins House is a Tudor Castle built between 1920-1923. The architect is Grosvenor Atterbury, but the house itself is based on the Compton Wyngates Castle in Warwickshire, England which was built in 1525.
The house was built by WPI alumni Aldus Higgins (1893), and donated to WPI by his heirs in 1970. Today it serves the WPI campus in multiple capacities. On the day I visited, a large welcoming party was going on.
The interiors are lovely. Here is a sample of what I saw.
The gardens are also beautiful and provide an oasis for the students on campus.
