The mansion's six bedrooms, complete with fireplaces and hand-painted decorative murals by American society painter Robert Chandler, were converted into classrooms. Bathrooms and dressing rooms were modified to provide faculty with offices and laboratories. The servant's quarters were transformed into the men's dormitories, which could accommodate twenty-four residents. (credit: University Archives, Stony Brook University).
