This building, originally the residence of the first president of Amherst College, was erected on the south corner of Pleasant and Sellen Streets. It was purchased by the fraternity in 1879 and was sold in 1912, after the construction of the new chapter house on the lot adjacent. This house was removed right after the sale in 1912 and parts of it were used in the contruction of other houses.
