Bancroft Hall Interior of the 1970's


Phillips Academy


Bancroft Hall donated by Melville Cox Day was the first large size dormitory building in the Southwest Quadrant it had rooms for 36 boys. The year was 1898. Thirty years later it was deemed to be in the way of the vista and had to go. It was moved 100 yards and rotated 90 degrees to its new home on Old Quad Road. A redone Common Room boasts a piano, for playing all those Academy songs like Royal Blue.
