Harlan front.jpg

The Harlan Building, built circa 1810, is the oldest building on the grounds of the old Ferris Reform School, the first vocational training school for delinquent boys in Delaware.  It is a two-story, six-bay, stucco-covered masonry structure built in a vernacular Federal style -- and was originally the main dwelling on a farming estate called "Woodside," owned by Philip Quigley.  It later served as administration building for the Ferris Reform School, which was founded in 1885.
