The Manor is the college's guest house used for visiting scholars, performers, artists and speakers. The Manor is a century-old Monmouth landmark built with historic ties to a prominent local family. The house received a new lease on life in 2006, thanks to the generosity of an MC alumnae.
The former Pattee home, at 701 East Broadway, which served as the presidential manse during two Monmouth College administrations, was donated to the college by MC trustee Bonnie Bondurant Shaddock and her husband, Roland. The stately brick residence, which is a notable example of American Foursquare architecture, is located across the street from the college's admission building.
