The historic former residence at 61 Summit Street was designed by Boston architect Edgar Allen Poe Newcomb in the style of Queen Anne architecture.  In 1892, the approximate 18,000-sft structure featuring intricate carvings by Albert H. Whittekind was constructed for Edward Wells. From 1924 to 2003 the house was home to the Delta Psi Fraternity and in 1979 was entered into the National Register of Historic Places.  The restoration and renovation of the building into the UVM Alumni House will create a welcoming home environment and event space for visiting alumni and campus guests, and provide additional administrative space for UVM Foundation staff.
