Grace Watson Hall

 

Do you notice the stark contrast of the hallway in Grace Watson Hall?  This building which is located near the residence halls, was named after Mrs. Grace C. Watson, a former student of Mechanic Institute - now RIT.  In her will, Mrs. Watson left more than $2.5 million to RIT. Such amount was known to be the largest single bequest ever made during that time, thus influencing the institution’s decision to move its campus from the Downtown Rochester to suburban Henrietta in 1968.
