Building History

This residence was purchased by the college in 1930 for use as a home management house. It was demolished in 1991. Kent House was likely built in the 1910s and was located on SW 26th Street between what are now Ballard Extension Hall and the Oceanography Administration Building. It is not known for whom the house was named, though it may be named for the owner at the time of its purchase.
