The Flora Stone Mather College District is a 3.6-acre (1.5 ha) historic district in Cleveland, Ohio, United States. It includes five contributing buildings.[1]

The district is in the University Circle neighborhood, on the campus of Case Western Reserve University. The included buildings are Clark Hall, Guilford House, Haydn Hall, Harkness Chapel, and the Mather Memorial Building.[2] Mather House and Mather Dance Center are within the district, but are not considered contributing buildings.

Clark Hall and Guildford House (also known as Guilford Cottage) were built in 1891-1892. Clark Hall is the only known work in Cleveland by noted architect Richard Morris Hunt. Guilford House was designed by Cleveland architects Coburn & Barnum.[2]

Florence Harkness Memorial Chapel and Haydn Hall were both built during 1901-02. Flora Stone Mather Memorial Hall was built during 1910-1912. All three were designed by architect Charles F. Schweinfurth. A 1930 addition to the Mather Memorial Building was designed by Charles Hopkinson.[2]
