Dalton Hall

Dalton Hall was the second building to be constructed for St. Dunstan’s College and was named for Sir Charles Dalton, a wealthy fox rancher from Tignish, whose generous donations provided the funds to build it. Built to serve as a residence in 1917, the building was officially blessed and opened by the Papal Nuncio in September 25, 1919, and remained a residence until 1972, when it was renovated to be used for office and classroom space.
