ALUMNI HOUSE

Alumni House was built by the Wolfville merchant, John Brown in 1852.  Mr. Brown was much inspired by the classical design of the newly built Acadia College Hall, which stood across the road.  Accordingly, he hired he same builder/architects, Edmund and Lewis Davidson of Greenwich, to ennoble his abode with heavy Ionic pilasters at the entrance and handsome interior pillars presenting the spiral stairwell.   Though not a huge mansion, Mr. Brown’s home was a powerful statement in favour of the Greek Revival movement in domestic architecture.  In 1920 the home became the Acadia’s Presidents House and was occupied in succession by Presidents Cutten, Paterson, Kirkconnell, Beveridge, Sinclair and Perkin.  In 1994 this architectural gem began a new life as Alumni House.
