Rose Terrace is a striking Italianate building with decorative brickwork and chimneys. It was built ca. 1875 as a home for Holmes Erwin and purchased in 1919 by Mary Baldwin. Since then, it has been used as the president's home, a residence hall, and the office of admissions. It is listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places.
