Pi Kappa Alpha (Old House)
360 South Lumpkin Street
Athens, Georgia

Pi Kappa Alpha was founded at the University of Virginia in 1868 and has grown to become the largest national fraternity with 203 active chapters and over 200,000 initiates. The Alpha Mu Chapter at the University of Georgia was founded in 1908, making Pike one of the oldest fraternities on campus. In 1962 the Pike House was located on Hull Street, the site the Holiday Inn currently uses for additional parking. At that time, some Pi Kappa Alpha brothers were residing at Mrs. "Mama" Dean's Boarding House at Five Points (formerly the Kappa Sigma house). The Pike House was sold to Mrs. Dean and the Pikes swapped locations with her. Pike brothers remained in the house at Five Points through Spring Quarter 1965. Without a house during the Fall Quarter 1965, brothers held rush in Memorial Hall and showed an artist's rendering of the new house to rushees. The Pikes moved to 360 South Lumpkin in Winter Quarter 1966. After housing the Chapter for 43 years, the house was demolished in 2009. The Pikes have relocated to their beautiful new Chapter House in Greek Park on River Road.
