Greenwood and Peck Houses

Opened for the 2023-24 school year, the Greenwood House Renovation Project significantly improved the dormitory overlooking the Canaan Street Lake and included the addition of a second faculty apartment named Peck House.

The project honors Penny Peck H’17, an honorary alumna and former faculty member. Penny was house mother to generations of Cardigan boys during the 1970s and 1980s, and the Pecks have remained staunch supporters of the school in the ensuing decades. Today, Penny embodies Cardigan’s Core Values as she fights a courageous battle against cancer. It is typical of both Penny’s dedication to the field of education and her demonstrated love for the boys that she and Schuyler would choose this moment to champion a project that benefits Cardigan students.

Dedication Ceremony

Greenwood and Peck Houses were formally dedicated in a ceremony on October 20, 2023, with Penny H’17 and Schuyler ’63 Peck and their family, Head of School Chris Day P’12,’13, Board Chair David Gregory P’18, Cardigan Trustees, donors, students, faculty, and staff in attendance.

I understand the importance of dorm life at Cardigan, and I know the impact that Penny’s project will have in the long term. I am also very moved that Penny and Schuyler would choose this moment to champion a project that benefits Cardigan students.

History of Greenwood House

In 1973, Greenwood House was gifted to Cardigan by Charles and Dorothy Greenwood Banks in memory of Penny’s grandfather, the Honorable Ernest Greenwood. Mr. Greenwood was an educator, humanitarian, and sportsman who had served as headmaster of the Dwight School and as a United States Senator from New York. After the dorm’s construction, the first family to live in Greenwood House were the Pecks: Penny, husband and fellow faculty member Schuyler ’63, and children Nikki and Jason.
