Exterior of Taplin House

Part of the North Residential Village, Taplin House is a traditional-style residence hall in the first-year Juniper residential community. It houses approximately 110 students in mostly double rooms. Taplin House was named for Elsie May Holliday Taplin (1879-1961), an alumna who served on the Western Reserve University Board of Trustees from 1941 to 1948. She grew up in Cleveland as the daughter of prominent physician Dr. Benjamin Holliday, and both she and her sister Marguerite attended Western Reserve University College for Women. She met her husband, Charles F. Taplin when they were both members of the Class of 1901 at Western Reserve University.
