Phi Delta Theta Fraternity (Old House)
The University of Georgia

Phi Delta Theta 
690 S. Lumpkin Street
Athens, Georgia

Phi Delt's stately red brick Chapter house on 690 Lumpkin St. was demolished in 2009.  The Georgia Alpha Chapter has since relocated to their beautiful new house in Greek Park on River Road.

In 1871, the Georgia Alpha Chapter of Phi Delta Theta was founded at the University of Georgia. With 137 years on UGA's campus, they are the longest continuously active fraternity at UGA, priding themselves on their strong, close-knit brotherhood and the caliber of the chapter. Since 1871, Georgia Alpha has consistently produced some of Georgia's greatest governors, lawyers, and businessmen, including the late Governors Vandiver and Busbee, and Olympic Committee Chairman and Chairman of Augusta National, Billy Payne. Several members of the chapter have served in the Armed Forces and the fraternity is proud to count a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor among their distinguished Alumni.

In the last several years, before the house was demolished, a football was lodged on the roof. By special request, a football edition is also offered to those who want to remember the house this way. This football is painted in (look closely, when you receive your print) in the exact location it lay..
