The Mary Johnson Lane House, in continuous service as a residence for the president of the college until late 1999, was renovated in 1994. It was named in memory of Mrs. Mary Johnson Lane, the wife of Dr. James Franklin Lane, for her untiring service to the college as registrar, secretary, and library staff member.
