Sigma Chi House (1905-1925)

Sigma Chi House, 1915

In 1900, the Sigma Chi fraternity at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania purchased a lot on West High Street adjacent to South College, and upon the site was constructed a house designed by Ray Zug, class of 1897 and a member of the fraternity. The formal dedication of the building took place in 1905.

The fraternity occupied the building only until 1925 when it was sold to the College for $9,000. In 1924 the fraternity had purchased the former home of Charles Berg on South College Street. The College rented the building to Tau Epsilon Phi, a fraternity at the Dickinson Law School. It was then razed in 1927 to make room for the new Alumni Gymnasium.
