Traditio

From the plaque designating the adminstration building a Landmark: "This Greek revival manor house was built from 1836-38. The random ashlar structure has on of the finest entrance porches in New York City. The fluted Ionic columns and square corner posts support a superbly proportioned full entablature. Fordham takes its name from the manor of Fordham, granted in 1671 to John Archer by the British royal governor of New york, Francis Lovelace. In 1839 the property was acquired by the right reverend John Hughes for use as a seminary and college. -New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation, 1989."
