Boardman House is a historic home located at Ithaca in Tompkins County, New York. It was built in 1867 and is a three story, with full basement, Italianate style brick structure. The main block is 42 feet square and features a hipped roof and cupola. The house is named for the first dean of Cornell Law School, Douglass Boardman. In 1911, the building became the Ithaca Conservatory of Music, now Ithaca College.[2] In 1966 the Ithaca College Museum of Art opened in the Boardman House, but the museum closed in 1972.[3] The college sold the building in 1972.[4]
