Stone House was the first bungalow constructed in Ooty. It was built by John Sullivan and was called Kal Bangala by the tribals (Kal means stone in Tamil). Today, it is the official residence of the Principal of the Government Arts College, Ooty. The tree in front of the bungalow is known as the Sullivan's oak.
John Sullivan started building Stonehouse in 1822. He acquired land from the Toda people at one rupee an acre.
