Date of Construction: 1949
Known Uses:
Second President's House (1949-2001) and Delta Zeta Sorority House (2001-present).

600 W. Forest Street

Constructed in 1949 the house remained largely unchanged until 1975 when President James Brickley and his family took possession of the house. The kitchen was expanded and the study altered. The interior was also repainted.

600 W. Forest Street

Over the past half century, the house has sheltered five presidential families. In 2000, however, it ended its service as the president's house. It would become a sorority house (Delta Zeta Sorority) with space for fourteen to sixteen girls in the six bedroom/six bath house.
