Building History: 

From 1917 through 1961, Grinnell House at the corner of Park Street and Fifth Avenue served as the home of each president of the College. During the presidency of Howard Bowen, it was felt that more privacy was needed for the president's family, and the house at 1600 Park Street, designed by Russell and Lynch of Des Moines, was built and has served as the home of Grinnell's presidents ever since.
