Delta Colonial house

the Delta Colonial clubhouse

When Phi Delta Psi organized in 1903, a clubhouse was built in the neo-Colonial Georgian revival style to resemble an English gatehouse. It was planned to have the main entry road pass under the house, but Vesta Cassedy realized that the symbolic implications of this placement might cause resentment in the other students. If the road had been brought under the Delta house, it would have necessitated a move of both the Alpha and Theta clubhouses (even though this move was never made, the artists moved them on color drawings that appeared in the annual catalog, and never corrected the mistake!)
