Description
The 1884 Phi Delta Theta Fraternity built the Phi Delta Alpha house at 5 Webster Avenue the first fraternity on Webster Avenue and the beginning of a general movement of fraternities to that street that would not pick up speed until the 1920s. The house opened in 1902 was designed by College architect Charles Alonzo Rich. The house caused concern among Trustees who voted in 1902 to limit houses to 14 beds and to forbid dining facilities. The organization became the local Phi Delta Alpha in 1960.(Source: Scott Meacham "Notes toward a Catalog of the Buildings and Landscapes of Dartmouth College "Dartmo.: The Buildings of Dartmouth College (updated 2001) at http://www.dartmo.com/buildings)Modeled by Jessica Glago
