Mystery Monday: official residence

Yale has a few houses reserved for the use of certain university employees. Where is this house? And who lives there?

    Southwest corner of Wall and Temple Streets. It was (is?) the athletic director's house, at least in the early 90s.

    Chris Ruddy: that's the spot! It is now the University Chaplain’s house.

    <> I believe this house [1806] is the third-oldest Yale building extant, after Connecticut Hall 1750 and the Pierpont House 1764 [Mead Visitor Center]... if you don't count Elihu's tomb [Nicholas Callahan House 1762] or the Graduate Club [Jonathan Mix House 1799] <<<>>> Nathanial Taylor House 1806 David Hoadley -> Chaplain's House 1919 J. Frederick Kelly. Wall St. 66 <> A two-1/2 -story 3 bay Federal frame clapboard house constructed in 1806. A brick addition of about the same size was built in the 1870's. After a runaway truck crashed into the Temple Street facade, a door was installed on Wall Street. J. Frederick Kelly remodeled the house in 1919-1922 after Yale purchase .
