In 1919, then-owner Spencer C. Lewis sold the house to the Sigma Chi Alumni Association as a residence for the fraternity. SU purchased the building from Sigma Chi to house the College of Business Administration Research Center and faculty offices. Prior to demolition in June 1989, Sigma Chi members of the Class of 1939 who were attending their 50th Anniversary class reunion were allowed to tour the building.
