Gov. Wilber M. Brucker House, 619 M.A.C. Ave.
(c. 1925 - c. 1999)
Wilber Marion Brucker (1894–1968) served as Governor of Michigan 1931–1932. He also served as Secretary of the U.S. Army 1955–1961, during which time the Army launched the first U.S. satellite, Explorer 1.
This was one of three former homes of Michigan Governors listed as a significant structure by the East Lansing Historic Commission. In the late 1990s it was owned by the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, which wanted to use the land to expand the parking lot of its chapter house next door. Efforts were made to find a buyer for the house who would move it to another site, but this never came to fruition and the house was demolished.
