Fraternity--209 Downey Avenue
This wonderful photo taken in 1923 shows the home of the Sigma Chi House for Butler University. The house still stands (see previous post) and although it can not be seen, it was located next to the former Pennsylvania Railroad. Sited on a large lot, the young men who dwelled here had plenty of yard to display their "props" and signs. I do not know why they had a horse in the front yard, but perhaps it had something to do with a football game against Bethany College.
