“Formerly at 131 E. Grand River Avenue, this structure is an excellent example of the homes which used to line Grand River Avenue prior to commercial development. Originally the residence of Dr. C. M. Dickson, the structure became the home of the Phylean Society in 1916. The house was moved to Albert [Avenue] around 1922. This Queen Anne style with its narrow wood siding, bay window and decorative brackets is original, but the porch has been enclosed.”[Landmark Walking Tour]

At one time this building was also known as “College Cottage.”
