Mayflower Hall Rollins College, Winter Park, FL. I In 1926, Rollins' eighth president, Hamilton Holt, announced his intention to develop the campus in the Mediterranean style. He hired Coral Gables architect Richard Kiehnel to create a master plan for the campus. Kiehnel's Spanish Mediterranean style, popularized by Addison Mizner, has become synonymous with Rollins College. The first of Kiehnel's designs to be constructed were three small (19-room) residence halls, Rollins, Puglsey, and Mayflower Halls (1929-1930). Cross, Fox, Gale, Hooker, and Lyman Halls were added in 1936, followed by Strong Hall in 1939. All continue to serve as students' first-choice residence halls.
