Cash House is one of 12 original buildings on the Harvard Business School campus and was built in 1926 as a faculty residence by architects McKim, Mead & White. The stucco and brick building has been repurposed several times, most recently in 1984, and currently contains HBS’s administrative space for its Executive Education programs. Previously known as Glass House, the building was renamed in honor of James I. Cash, the first Black member of the faculty to receive tenure and known for breaking barriers for Black people and for his leadership at the school.
