Point of Interest Details

This eclectic house was built in 1909, probably as residential rental property. Distinctive features include the double-pitched hipped roof with flared eaves, Prairie-style windows, and Craftsman-inspired porch.

The house's first occupant was John Bergen, a salesman, who lived there through the 1920s. It was later a sorority house for the Rho Psi and Alpha Epsilon Phi societies. Professor George Lauman, who founded the department of rural, or agricultural, economics at Cornell, lived here during the 1940s.
