Robert A. Taft House was Bryant’s former Administration Building, located at 154 Hope Street, Providence, RI. Bryant purchased this 14 room wood framed brick residence in 1947 from the estate of Mrs. Robert W. Taft. Mr. Robert W. Taft was a Providence banker and textile manufacturer.

This residence was constructed in 1895 and was designed by architects Stone, Carpenter & Wilson. It features ogee gables on the main roof conservatory and portico. Stone, Carpenter & Wilson designed many buildings in Providence, many of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including Union Station, Brown’s Ladd Observatory and the Union Trust Company Building.

In 1961, Bryant constructed an addition to Taft House. Taft House was sold to Brown University in 1969 and is currently a coed literary fraternity residence, St. Anthony Hall.
