Suzanne's office is located in the nationally-registered historic landmark Nelson Salisbury House (under renovation). The office and parlor waiting areas are filled with various forms of artwork and companion animals (cats and goldfish) to encourage relaxation and creative thought. Built in 1873, the Nelson Salisbury House is an example of American-style Italianate architecture using locally made limestone bricks and quarried slabs filled with fossils. It is named after its builder and original owner whose family helped develop Whitewater and the university. Many generations of college students lived in the house when it was used as a sorority and fraternity house.
