Located on Prospect Street, Talbot House is close to the Campus Center (great for late-night snacks), and is only a short walk to libraries, classrooms and administrative buildings. Downtown Northampton, with its many shops and restaurants, is only a 10-minute walk.
Built in 1909, Talbot House was originally part of the Capen School, a private school run by Miss Bessie Capen in the early 1900s. The house became a Smith College residence when Smith acquired the Capen School property in 1921.
The house has a cozy living room, where housemates gather to socialize, and a study room.
Talbot House has the distinction of being the home of a moose. He's of the stuffed variety and serves as the house mascot.
