The Italian Villa style house was built in 1875 by George Henry Corliss, inventor of the Corliss Steam Engine. It was later acquired by his relative, Charles Brackett, a screenwriter who donated the house to Brown University in 1955. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. From 1973-2013, the house served as the Admission Office for Brown. It is currently shared by the Brown University Department of Economics and the Department of Philosophy.
