Dana Hill was named for American statesman Francis Dana, whose estate sat atop the hill. A signer of the Articles of Confederation, Dana was also a delegate to the Continental Congress and an active supporter of Harvard University.
The historic Harvard Street district surrounding the summit of Dana Hill consists of seven well-kept homes, most of which were constructed in the 1850s. Two Colonial Revival-style homes were built later, one in 1887 and one in 1897. Two of the older homes are of the Italianate architectural style. In 1982, the area was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Another historic attraction in the area is Harvard University's Memorial Hall located just to the north of Harvard Yard. Completed in 1878, the magnificent High Victorian Gothic-style multi-use building memorializes Harvard's Civil War veterans. Constructed on the Delta playing field, the building consists of three divisions, including Sanders Theatre; Annenburg Hall, previously known as Alumni Hall or the Great Hall; and Memorial Transept. Loker Commons, located beneath Annenburg Hall, houses several student facilities.
The 1,166-seat Sanders Theatre, the largest meeting place on the Harvard campus, is a highly-demanded venue for high-profile concerts, lectures and conferences.
Dedicated in 1874, the 8,700-square-foot Annenburg Hall was originally the site of formal occasions but now serves as the freshman and summer school dining facility.
The 2,600-square-foot Memorial Transept honors 136 Harvard veterans killed in the Civil War.
The majestic Memorial Hall tower, the final portion of the building to be completed, was reconstructed in 2000 to replicate the original tower, its top having been destroyed in a fire in the 1950s.
