If you were at Wilkes before 1967, Ross Hall was still the home of Dr. N. Frederick Schappert, a physician. Wilkes bought the home in 1967, and named it in honor of the Ross family, who aided in the development of Luzerne County.


The Romanesque-style building was built around 1896. Its property was originally part of the Atherton lot whose home stood at 36 West River Street, the current location of Waller Hall North.
