Several plans were drawn up to encourage faculty housing in private homes, but only Daniel Kirk, Professor of Psychology carried out the goal.  With a 99 year lease from the College, he built a house now called Kirk House used for the chaplain’s residence.  (Source: Marist College Land History: Barnard Parcel
