...the most enviable classroom in New England!
Misselwood Center is the home of the School of Hospitality Management and houses a teaching/demonstration classroom, an outdoor-tented event area, as well as La Chanterelle, the non-traditional classroom. At Misselwood, students learn first-hand what it takes to operate a restaurant and, throughout the curriculum, students are actively involved in hands-on classes such as service management, events management and culinary arts.
The state of the art facilities at Misselwood give hospitality students the opportunity to practice European style a-la-carte service at La Chanterelle, as well as integrate their theoretical knowledge with practical experience by planning, organizing and executing large events at the specious oceanfront tent.
Susan B. Cabot owned the property from 1874 - 1909 and named the summer house she constructed on the property "Misselwood". In 1926 Rodolphe Louis and Maria Agassiz purchased the land and, two years later, constructed the current house. It was designed by Bigelow, Wadsworth, Hubbard and Smith, Architects of Boston. Endicott College purchased the property in 2003 from R.L. Agassiz's grandson Cornelius Conway Felton, Jr. and in 2006, the house was renovated and a state-of-the-art kitchen was installed for La Chanterelle, the non-traditional classroom, while the adjecent carriage house was converted into a classroom.
