Located on the FHU campus adjacent to the Anderson Science Center, the five-bedroom, five-bath Laurel Cottage Hospitality House provides you with a warm, welcoming home away from home. FHU renovated this Main Street property for the exclusive purpose of hosting you and other campus guests. Each room is furnished with your comfort in mind, and you’ll find specific details about each room by visiting the links on this page. This facility was established to reflect the love of Christ, along with sincere gratitude for your visit to campus.
All rooms are named in honor or memory of former first ladies of Freed-Hardeman. The cottage itself is named for Mrs. Laurel Sewell, also a first lady.
