Strong House

Strong House (originally Strong Hall) is a dormitory at Vassar College named after Bessie Rockefeller Strong, the oldest daughter of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, who was largely responsible for funding the building's construction.[1] It is the only all female dormitory remaining after Vassar went coeducational in 1969. The building was designed by Francis R. Allen and was completed in 1893.[2]

It is located at Vassar College, in Poughkeepsie, New York.
