May Patterson Goodrum House
Completed in 1932, the May Patterson Goodrum House (formerly the Southern Center for International Studies) is a Regency-style residence with a central bay flanked by offset but symmetrical rectangular wings. The central bay is accented with a delicate porch with attenuated Ionic columns that was inspired by the Gardner-Pingree house in Salem, Massachusetts. Surmounting the entry porch is a Palladian window. The exterior of the house is brick with limestone accents. Inside, the dining room is graced with chinoiserie murals by Allyn Cox of New York. Meanwhile, the octagonal breakfast room is adorned with murals by the Italian-born artist Athos Menaboni.
