Built in 1828, the Samuel Wadsworth Russell House is actually a Greek revival mansion. It was designed by one of the 1st generation professional architects of the United States, Ithiel Town. Today, the national historic landmark is owned by the Wesleyan University, after being deeded to the School in 1937. The building was originally created for Samuel Russell, founder of the Russell & Company in China, and was occupied by five generations of Russells.

Currently, the house is being used as a school facility, particularly as home to the Philosophy Department of the University. For thirty years, the Samuel Wadsworth Russell House has been a place for authors, poets, and scholars. During the summer, the house caters to events such as weddings and other special gatherings.
