Chesterton House

A Center for Christian Studies at Cornell

Our Facilities

Chesterton House owns a large residential facility for men (Chesterton House) and rents facilities for women (Sophia House). 

The Chesterton House men's residential facility, located at 115 The Knoll, is a large English Tudor mansion with large common areas on the first floor, including a living room, sun room, dining room, and industrial kitchen. Our resource room, which features many of the best volumes of Christian scholarship and subsciptions to about 15 periodicals, is located on the second floor.  The facility houses up to 18 men.

Sophia House, located nearby, provides residence for up to 12 women.  Currently, the Sophia House community operates across several houses, though we are seeking to purchase a unifying residential facility.
