Jackson House (1961-1963)

Jackson House, 1961

The College purchased the former residence of W. L. Jackson on July 14, 1961, at a cost of $37,500. The house, located at 42 North College Street, was part of a land acquisition project designed to secure room for the construction of a new student union.

The Jackson House served as a men’s honors dormitory until 1963, when it was razed to make way for the new Holland Union Building.
