Roselawn, the traditional home of Roanoke College presidents, was erected in 1915 and first occupied by Dr. John Alfred Morehead, fourth president, and his family in 1916. Prior to its construction, presidents had lived in a home on the same land originally built by Dr. William B. Yonce (1828-1895) and purchased from him by Dr. Julius D. Dreher, third president of the college (1846-1937). Roselawn presently serves as the Admissions House and Financial Aid Office.
