Bennett College ~ Millbrook, NY

Welcome to the Bennett College Millbrook, NY Web site

About This Site - July 21, 2013

My name is Diane and I created this site to remember Bennett College and those involved, including Halcyon Inn's developer: Henry J. Davison, Jr., publisher of Godey's Magazine and Architect: James E. Ware as well as May Friend Bennett, founder of The Bennett School for Girls, who purchased the Inn and renamed the building Halcyon Hall.

Remembering Bennett College

While the college closed in 1978 and this once magnificent building (campus) is about to be demolished, I prefer to remember the college  in all it's beauty and splendor. My goal is to include as many vintage photographs/illustrations as possible as well as connect with individuals who attended or worked at the college/school - I'm hoping these individuals may also have photos to share as well as stories about the college/school. (If so, please contact me via the "Contact Us" page - Thank You!)
