The David J. Dolan House, formerly named the Estate House and completed in 1930, has been home to several iterations of university programs, including the School of Continuing Education, University College, and the Center for Ignatian Spirituality.
This building is part of the Dolan Campus located in the northern portion of the university property. It was acquired and renovated with the assistance of the Dolan Family Foundation and Helen and Charles Dolan, a trustee and pioneer in cablevision. Purchased from the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in 1989, the property contains three buildings: John C. Dolan Hall, David J. Dolan House, and Thomas F. Dolan Commons. David J. Dolan (1886-1943) was an inventor in the automobile and aircraft industries and was awarded the French Croix de Guerre for his service in the Marine Corps in World War I. Image date is approximate.
