Parks House located at 87 Cooke Street, Providence, RI was purchased by Bryant President Henry Jacobs in 1952 and leased to the college for use as a men's dormitory. Bryant purchased this residence from Jacobs' son E. Gardner Jacobs in 1963 after Henry Jacobs' death earlier in that year. Parks House was named after George Mansfield Parks, a manager of the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company in Providence, and also a Bryant honorary degree recipient in 1933.
