Note:
For the Episcopal boys' school founded in 1900, Stillwell designed several buildings of local rough-cut brown stone quarried from the site.These complement the Gothic Revival chapel (1905), which was probably designed by school founder Thomas Wetmore. Stillwell's initial connection came through his partner, H. C. Meyer, who planned a classroom building in 1913, and Stillwell alone designed dormitories in 1930 and 1937, Wetmore Hall in 1940, and other buildings.
