Along with Ochre Court, Mercy Hall, originally the estate stables, were donated to Salve Regina University in 1948, a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Robert Goelet. The tower, red brick façade, and white trim recall continental stables that are characteristic of the eighteenth century. The building now contains a small theater and art gallery.
