Built in 1905, Caz was the second of the Hazard Quad residence halls to be built.
It’s not every college dormitory that has a crenelated tower parapet, white stone quoins on polygonal tower corners, stringcourses, greystone, and diamond patterns in the brick walls. But Cazenove does, and that, according to Council of Independent Colleges Historic Campus Architecture Project, combined with “the rustication of the first two stories of the tower provide variety and texture to the whole design.”
Funded by College co-founder Pauline Durant, the hall was named for her mother.
Like its neighbor Beebe, Cazenove is up for full renovation, with the exception of the link to Pomeroy.
