UW’s historic Greek Row has a character all its own

Posted on

At most universities, if fraternities and sororities are built off campus, the rows are ordinarily a scattering of Greek-letter houses located in some spontaneous pattern at varying distances and directions. But at Washington, we find a Greek Row with none of that scatteration. Instead, ours has a remarkable coalescence of houses almost entirely confined in the first blocks due north of the campus, comprising not much more than seven blocks dominated almost entirely by Greek-letter student housing groups.

Gamma Phi Beta

In this area, most houses were built in the 1920s and early ’30s, affording a certain unity in design and volume, although many were altered in the post-war years. Most followed one of two architectural styles of the period—Collegiate Tudor/Gothic or Georgian Revival. And many renowned Seattle architects lent their considerable skills to these projects, including NBBJ co-founder William Bain Sr., the iconoclastic Ellsworth Storey, longtime UW Architecture Professor

Nuck Log House 

In 1843, Joseph and Margaret Nuck left their home in Elmstein in the German province of Bavaria for a new life in America. They crossed the Atlantic Ocean, traveled up the Erie Canal to Buffalo, crossed Lake Erie on a steamer, then traveled down the Wabash and Erie Canal to Huntington, Indiana. During their early years here, Joseph and his son, Matthias, worked for Chief Lafontaine, clearing the Chief’s land for 25¢ a day. In 1847, the Nucks purchased land about two miles north of the Forks and built this house. As they prospered, they put siding on their log house to make it look more like a “real” house, and added rooms. The house, with the additions removed, was brought to the Forks in 1981. It has been furnished as a pioneer house of the mid-1800s.

Historic Leadville Walking Tour | Leadville, Colorado

Posted on

Leadville, a Victorian-era mining town, was once home to 30,000 residents. In its heyday, it saloons, dance halls, and brothels. Thanks to the profiting gold and silver mines, there was also a lot of wealth, which afforded the construction of hotels, Victorian mansions, and the Tabor Opera House.

70 square blocks of Leadville’s downtown were designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. Since then, extensive preservation efforts have put much of the town’s rich history on display. With such notable structures as the Healy House, Heritage Museum, Delaware Hotel, and Tabor Home on the route, a historic walking tour of downtown Leadville is not to be missed.

Updated at 9:27 p.m. ET

House lawmakers voted to impeach President Trump on Wednesday in only the third such rebuke in American history.

The move triggers a trial for Trump in the Senate, expected in January — one in which majority Republicans are likely to permit him to retain his office.

The vote was 230 to 197 on the first of two articles of impeachment — abuse of power — with one member voting present. The House then passed the second article — obstruction of Congress — with a vote of 229 to 198,
