UVM Projects:

This historical Queen Anne style building has had two very distinct chapters. The first chapter, from 1892 to 1919, as the home of Edward Wells, who lived in the home with his family. Edward Wells was the president of Wells, Richardson & Co. of Burlington. The homes construction was completed by the Christmas of 1892.

The second chapter began in 1924, after being vacant for five years it then served as a University of Vermont (UVM) frat house for Delta Psi until 2003. On October 3rd, 1979 the house was added on to the National Register of Historic Places.

Today it is being renovated for a third chapter as the UVM's Alumni House. 

The Alumni house site will create a significant four-acre presence for alumni's on the west side of the campus. It will be a place that alumni can use as a place for annual events for years to come. UVM hopes that 61 Summit Street will always have a welcome mat out for alums, parents, and friends whenever they are visiting.

Wheeler House
Wheeler House was constructed as a home for John B. Wheeler who served as the president of UVM in 1842. After retiring at the age of 51 from his presidency at UVM he continued to live in the house until his death in 1862.

The house remained occupied by the Wheeler family until 1943. After the family moved out rumors led the community to believe that there were plans to demolish the home and build a housing development in its place. Alumni and friends of UVM raised the funds to buy the property and donate it to the University in 1944. 

After acquiring the property it was transformed into the Wasson Infirmary for Pearl Randall Wasson who was the first Dean of Women at UVM. In 1975 the infirmary moved to East Avenue and the Wheeler House then became the home of the History Department. In 1974 The Wheeler House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

2012, the Wheeler House is still home to the History Department and Historic Preservation Program.

Englesby House
The Englesby House was designed in 1914 by Wilder and White Architects in New York City. The original owner of the house was Dr. William Englesby. William practiced medicine from 1899 to 1933 when he died. After William's wife died in 1956 the home was willed to UVM. The home was then used as a dormitory for women until the new president, John Fey, arrived in 1958.
The Englesby house was then remodeled and has since been home to the succeeding UVM Presidents until 2001. Since 2001 the build was vacant. 

In 2011 - 2013, the renovations begin once again to restore this home into a livable space for the new UVM president. Millbrook is part of the renovations to restore this house to a livable state.

UVM was remodeled several times throughout the years; in 1850 a belvedere was added to the roof, in 1870 a second story addition was added to the south side and further additions were added including the sun porch and porticos.
