The Chapter House

Our first house was located at 1709 College Avenue - the Robinson House, which was once a showplace of the copper era. It is now a parking lot between Wadsworth Hall and Douglass Hougton Hall. The house was rented from the University and had been a residence house for women for three years prior. The membership moved in during the fall term of 1962 and had our first and only housemother in residence: Mrs. Zella King.

The present home for Beta Sigma Theta was purchased in March and moved into on May 25, 1963. It is located three doors west of College Motel and only one block off campus at 1210 College Avenue. The 27 room house, set on a 200' x 200' property site, was purchased for $30,000.00 from the estate of the late Christopher Columbus Douglas, a local realtor. Facilities now include a sauna, weight room, industrial cooking unit, recreation room/bar, and a garage detached from the house.
