The original estate dwelling built in 1891 by Major William Cox was called Roughwood but is now referred to as The Dane Estate. "Candle snuffer" turrets, the use of local materials such as red sandstone, "pudding stone," and leaded glass windows create an impressive Richardson style structure. The circular drive is paved with cobblestones; originally ballast for Boston's sailing ships. The Mansion was built along with two gatehouses, the stable, a barn, a greenhouse and chicken houses. In 1904 the Dane Family purchased the estate and all its buildings, and over the years acquired additional land until the estate totaled 120 acres. A wing containing a music room was built in 1909 and with the addition of an organ loft in 1916 is now known as Founders Hall. The property was acquired by Pine Manor College in 1962.
