• This is the Denton House, built by Frederick Denton, general manager of the Copper Range Consolidated Company. The Denton house was on the west end of the campus, where a parking lot sits between the Social Science building and the President’s house. The college presumably purchased it or was given it by the Denton estate for use as faculty offices. The building as of 1960 housed the Engineering Administration Department. Probably that department did not need all the building's rooms because HU faculty in the 1960s recall being housed there as well.
