The Bishop’s House was built in 1876 as a residence for the director of the London Society for Promoting Christianity Among the Jews. A small room for the bishop’s use, called "the prophet’s room," was built on the roof. From 1878 until 1902, Arthur Hastings Kelk, the clergyman who headed the society in Jerusalem, lived there.
