The Rose Well House has been a requisite stop on Valentine’s Day for couples for years. Campus lore says couples who smooch in the Rose Well House become romantic partners for life. First built in 1908, the structure is a popular spot on campus for marriage proposals and weddings.
Named for Theodore F. Rose, class of 1875, the stone gazebo is one of the oldest structures on campus. It was designed by Arthur Foley, a physicist and architect who graduated from IU. The structure was originally part of the Old College Building.
