Re-Fridge at Stonehill College


Located 22 miles south of Boston in Easton, Mass., Stonehill was established in 1948 on the former estate of Frederick Lothrop Ames, Jr. Ames came from a wealthy Massachusetts family, prominent in 19th century New England society. In 1905 Lothrop, who worked in the family shovel business as well as in railroads, banking, and the breeding of Guernsey cows, built a 50-room mansion on his North Easton estate, which would later become the Stonehill campus. Engineering majors at the school spend their last four semesters on the University of Notre Dame campus, as Notre Dame is Stonehill’s sister school.
