"Breezedale", also known as Sutton-Elkin House, is a historic home located on the campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania at Indiana, Indiana County, Pennsylvania. It was built between 1865 and 1868, and has a 2 1/2-story, brick main building, 20 feet by 30 feet, in a Late Victorian-Italianate-style. Attached to the main section are a 12 feet by 18 feet wood addition, and two brick extensions. It features a classic portico and cupola. The building has been used as a dormitory and for classroom space, since being a part of the University after 1915.[2] It is now home to Breezedale Alumni Center.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
